Tuberculosis

 

If we are serious about Ending TB by 2030, this support must be expanded to ensure the most underserved are able to access quality diagnosis and treatment services through a people (women) centred, human rights based and gender transformative approach, as promoted by Stop TB Partnership.” Dr. Lucica Ditiu, Executive Director, Stop TB Partnership

The risk of developing tuberculosis (TB) is estimated to be between 26 and 31 times greater in people living with HIV than among those without HIV infection. The Global Fund works closely with World Health Organisation and the Stop TB Partnership along with countries and relevant stakeholders, including communities and civil society to ensure that programmes and interventions in countries address the needs on TB.
