WHO Director-General Dr Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus says that intensified actions and investments are needed to accelerate the response to tuberculosis (TB) and reach all affected people with prevention and care. TB is the world's biggest infectious killer, killing five thousand people every day. On 16-17 November, Ministers of Health and other sectors will come together in Moscow, where they will be joined by UN agencies, civil society, partners, the private sector, philanthropies, academia and donors, to ramp up the TB response and accelerate efforts to reach the end TB targets set as part of the UN Sustainable Development Agenda and the WHO End TB Strategy.
