The Global Plan to Stop TB 2011-2015
A third plan by the Stop TB Partnership provided an update for the 2011 - 2015 period. This followed the plan for ten years - The Global Plan to Stop TB 2006-2015. This updated plan set out what needed to be done to achieve the 2015 targets determined within the context of the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) and by the Stop TB Partnership. The plan focussed on scaling up existing interventions for the diagnosis and treatment of TB and introducing new technologies and notably new diagnostic tests.
