Despite being curable, #TB is still the world’s leading infectious killer. Highest Political leadership and funding for #WHO End TB Strategy and #Global Plan to End TB and ambitious country NSPs are the missing ingredients to ensure #EndTB for everyone #wanted leaders for a TB free world

Without increased high level political commitment it will be impossible to meet the SDG target to #EndTB by 2030. The UN HLM on TB is moment to #make history #End TB #Heads of State, #Leaders wanted to lead with clear actions and commitments to #EndTB. @WHO @StopTB
