Capitol Hill Briefing On TB Highlights Need For Continued Progress

The Center for Global Health Policy’s “Science Speaks” blog reports from a Capitol Hill briefing that took place on Wednesday examining the progress and challenges surrounding TB efforts. Speakers at the event recounted stories “of how illness as well as responses around the world are interconnected, when effective treatments for the airborne disease are compromised by stagnant funding.” At the event was documentary filmmaker Jezza Neumann, whose documentary “TB Silent Killer” aired Tuesday on FRONTLINE (Barton, 3/27).
