Why TB

Tuberculosis (TB) is the world's leading infectious killer.

 

Last year, 10.4 million people fell ill with the disease and 1.7 million died from it.  Since 2000, over 30 million people have died from TB.

 

We do not accept that millions of people are dying of a curable disease.

 

People think that TB is a disease of the past.  It is not. Parts of London have rates equivalent to parts of sub-Saharan Africa.  TB is aerially transmitted, it's drug-resistant, and it's found everywhere in the world.

 

The Global TB Caucus exists to make political leaders
take action on the disease by giving it a voice that Ministers and Heads of State will hear; their own colleagues in parliament.
