Price of a Pandemic
In November 2017 the Global TB Caucus launched "The Price of a Pandemic 2017", a report revealing the past, present and future cost of the TB epidemic to the global economy. Ahead of the Global Ministerial Conference on TB and the UN High Level Meeting on TB, "The Price of a Pandemic" reveals the economic cost of inaction and introduces a new perspective in the international TB response.
The research, commissioned by the Caucus and conducted by KPMG estimates that deaths from TB will cost the global economy nearly USD$1 trillion over the next 15 years, two-thirds of which will be in the G20.

Following the UK government's independent Review of Antimicrobial Resistance in 2016, GTBC produced this report outlining the causes and predicted impact of TB and Multi-Drug Resistant TB in the G20.
Annual Report 2017
