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.
Interview of Professor V. Skvortsova, Minister of Health, Russian Federation, for the First WHO Global Ministerial Conference "Ending Tuberculosis in the Sustainable Development Era: A Multisectoral Response"
Tuberculosis (TB) is the leading infectious killer in the world claiming 5,000 lives a day, and one of the top 10 causes of death worldwide. TB is preventable and curable, however, actions and investments fall far short of what is needed to end this epidemic.
This November, Ministers and other global leaders from across the world, will meet in Moscow to commit to end the global TB epidemic in line with the targets set by the WHO End TB Strategy and the UN Sustainable Development Goals.
Ministers of Health from around the world declared their commitment to end tuberculosis (TB) at the World Health Assembly this year.
Ministers shared their country experiences, concerns and responses on combating TB and pledged to attend WHO's upcoming Global Ministerial Conference on Ending TB in the Sustainable Development Era, which will be held in November 16-17 in Moscow, Russian Federation.
