The Global Fund is joining leaders who converge in New York today to commit to speeding up global collaboration in the fight against TB, a preventable disease that killed 1.6 million people in 2017.
The new WHO Global Tuberculosis Report 2018 is a call to arms for the international community, coming one week before the first UN High Level Meeting on TB, the Global Fund said. Of all the world’s infectious diseases, TB is the leading killer. Approximately 10 million people fell ill with the disease in 2017, and 1.6 million of those died.
