TB leadership needed

Canada should take a lead role in eradication of tuberculosis

More people than ever are being treated for tuberculosis and for the first time in history, death by TB is on the decline. But incurable, all-drug resistance TB is spreading due to inadequate treatment.

A $2 billion underfunding of the largest TB treatment provider, the Global Fund, compounds this spread. It is in our own interest to take a leadership roll and convince the world to eliminate this shortfall.
