Organization Description:
Recognizing that MDR-TB cannot be halted by medicine alone, Lilly created the Lilly MDR-TB
Partnership in 2003. This public-private initiative mobilizes over 20 partners on five continents to
tackle the scourge of TB and MDR-TB. Eli Lilly and Company is contributing US$ 120 million in cash,
medicines, advocacy tools and technology to focus global resources on prevention, diagnosis and
treatment of TB and MDR-TB. An additional US$ 15 million was given to the Lilly TB Drug Discovery
Initiative; a nonprofit with the goal of accelerating the discovery of new drugs to treat TB by bringing
together specialists from around the world. The company has made this investment to ensure that
thousands of MDR-TB patients receive the care and medication they need to combat this disease.
