U.S. Investments, Partnerships Helping Identify, Treat TB Cases Worldwide

U.S. Global Leadership Coalition: Tackling TB: How the U.S., the Global Fund, and PATH are Helping Wipe Out a 4,000-Year-Old Disease
Elizabeth Holtan, digital communications manager for USGLC, writes, “The U.S. government is a leader in the global effort to fight TB, as well as in infectious diseases research. Addressing the disease is an important element of the U.S. government’s goals of improving global health and reducing poverty  –  saving and improving lives, reflecting American values, and ultimately protecting Americans from becoming sick at home and abroad.” Holtan discusses how “strategic investments” by the U.S. in the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria, as well as partnerships among USAID, PEPFAR, and PATH, are helping different nations identify and treat TB cases (3/24).
