[Call to register] Webinar in lead up to World TB Day 2017: Unite to #endTB

[Watch webinar recording] [Listen or download podcast]
Welcome to this special webinar in lead up to 2017 World TB Day. Governments of more than 190 countries globally have committed to end TB by 2030 by adopting the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) at UN General Assembly in September 2015. This commitment to end TB is in line with the WHO End TB Strategy which was adopted by World Health Assembly in 2014.


Undoubtedly, health and non-health sectors both need to collaborate effectively along with other stakeholders, including affected communities, to accelerate efforts to end TB by 2030 (or earlier!). With this intent, potentially one of the most pivotal meeting happening this year, is the WHO Global Ministerial Conference: Ending TB in the sustainable development era: A multi-sectoral response (16-17 November 2017 | Moscow, Russia).

Experts from the World Health Organization (WHO), International Union Against TB and Lung Disease (The Union) and a TB survivor will be on the panel.

DATE: Friday, 17th March 2017

TIME: 1pm - 2pm Geneva time
