The Global Fund’s Strategic Initiative to Find the Missing People with TB shares its new edition of its quarterly newsletter detailing the progress and results achieved in the 13 high TB or DR-TB burden countries, receiving this investment. They account for 75% of all people with drug-susceptible (DS)-TB and 55% of all people with drug-resistant (DR)-TB who are missed globally (baseline: end of 2015).
“In 2020, as countries prepare their national strategic plans and gear up for the next round of funding, we are looking forward to supporting our partners on the ground and working with the Global Fund on laying out the path to the future of the Strategic Initiative.”
