Stop TB Partnership

The Global Plan to Stop TB 2001-2005

The first plan covered the period of 2001 - 2005. The plan was bold in its ambition and was the first of its kind following the Millennium Development Goals. This provided a coherent agenda to rally key new partners, push forward research and development, and have a rapid impact on TB in the areas suffering most from the epidemic It focussed on the expansion of the DOTS strategy and the emerging challenge of rising drug resistance in TB and HIV infection.
