U.N. Dispatch Discusses Latest Results From WHO’s Global TB Report

U.N. Dispatch: The Good, Bad and REALLY Bad News from the World Health Organization’s Latest Report on Tuberculosis
Alanna Shaikh, international development consultant, discusses results from the WHO’s recently released global tuberculosis report, highlighting progress and challenges ahead, as well as the need for increased investment. Shaikh writes, “In global health, we talk about ‘commitment,’ a lot. Most of the time, though, commitment just means money. And money is what’s needed here. … Better technology and treatments would help, but we’ve got enough tools already if we just had the funds to fully deploy them” (9/19).
