[Webinar] Are TB rates declining fast enough to meet SDGs?

[Watch webinar recording] [Listen or download audio podcast] Not only our governments have committed to #endTB by 2030 by adopting the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), but recently convened G20 Summit earlier this month in Germany also reinforced the commitment to improve global response to anti-TB drug resistance.

The G20 Leaders’ Declaration released by the G20 country heads of state has important commitments for the worldwide response to TB and antimicrobial resistance (AMR), and to ensuring access to affordable medicines, diagnostics and vaccines.

Earlier, the WHO End TB Strategy adopted by our governments at the World Health Assembly 2014, had laid out a plan to end TB by 2030.
 
Are we on track to meet these goals/ targets? Are TB rates (and deaths) declining, and declining fast enough?
