USAID Report Examines U.S. Role In Global TB Response

“The latest report [.pdf] from [USAID] on the U.S. role in the global tuberculosis response shows that while government agencies have made important contributions to the global TB effort, significant challenges continue to stand between universal access to prevention, care and treatment, and the impoverished populations that need those interventions the most,” the Center for Global Health Policy’s “Science Speaks” blog reports. “The report, ‘Accelerating Impact: Expanding Access to Care’ outlines USAID’s achievements in TB prevention and care, collaborative interagency activities, and USAID’s partnership with the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria,” the blog notes and discusses some of the report’s findings (Aziz, 6/7).
