13 billion USD per year is needed for TB prevention and care, to meet the UN TB Targets. Currently available funding is only half of this amount. This #WorldTBDay it’s time to fully fund it. UN TB Targets: https://bit.ly/3800PzM #ItsTimeToEndTB
The world needs more than 2 billion USD annually for TB R&D to develop new tools to #endTB. Despite an increase in 2018, the funding is still less than half of what is needed. Learn more in @StopTB’s new Global Plan: http://bit.ly/2sARpf3. #ItsTimeToEndTB #WorldTBDay
The diagnostic gap in TB is huge! 3 out of 10 million people developing TB are missing from care. This #WorldTBDay we call for funding and political commitment to scale up rapid molecular testing and improve access to diagnosis of TB and drug-resistant TB. #ItsTimeToEndTB
The @StopTB’s Global Plan calls for stronger political leadership to stimulate and predefine the Paradigm Shift needed for countries and the world to achieve the UNHLM TB targets and be on track to #EndTB. Global plan: https://bit.ly/3cboYqH #ItsTimeToEndTB #WorldTBDay
