Together, let’s invest to end TB and save lives.
2022 is a critical year in the global fight to end TB as we count down to reach our targets.
COVID-19 response and catastrophic gaps in funding continue to threaten our progress in eradicating TB. Less than half of the promised US$ 15 billion annual funding has been delivered. The case for investing in TB, thus, is foremost financial. Yet, the investment of hard work, resolve, emotion, and energy prove just as important as the monetary assets needed to end this preventable and curable disease.
This year’s World TB Day underscores how all of these investments build up to one common goal – saving lives. For World TB Day, let us remind our local and national leaders to keep their promise of investing in TB, saving lives, and achieving a #TBFreePH.
INVEST TO END TB. SAVE LIVES.
