Stop TB Partnership
As the Corona virus pandemic spreads around the globe, and all health care systems and governments seem to be engulfed with battling COVID-19, we realise it is more important than ever that we don’t lose sight of other existing health issues.
While coronavirus (COVID-19) dominates the news, we need to remember that another respiratory disease kills 1.5 million people per year: tuberculosis (TB). This is an opportunity to unite forces in the fight against TB and coronavirus.
As procurement agent for Stop TB /GDF, we are glad to share this news update as announced by the Stop TB partnership during the 50th Union Conference for Lung Health in Hyderabad, India.
