[Call to register] World TB Day Webinar: Politics of TB in 2018: Multisectoral accountability

[Watch webinar recording] [Listen or download podcast] In lead up to 2018 World TB Day, we invite you to have a direct interface with noted experts on why a multisectoral response is critically important if we are to end TB by 2030.  The theme of World TB Day 2018 - "Wanted: Leaders for a TB-free world" - focuses on building commitment to end TB, not only at the political level with heads of State, and ministers of health, but at all levels. All can be leaders of efforts to end TB in their own work or terrain.

This is a critical theme, given the political importance of the upcoming UN General Assembly high-level meeting on TB later this year, which will bring together Heads of State in New York. It follows on from a very successful Ministerial Conference on Ending TB in Moscow on 16-17 November, 2017 which resulted in high-level commitments from Ministers and other leaders from 120 countries to accelerate progress to end TB.

Date: Tuesday, 20th March 2018
Time: 1pm - 2pm Geneva time
