Stepping Up to End TB

The UN High-Level Meeting on TB in September is a critical opportunity to get initiatives to test, treat and prevent TB back on track after COVID-19 setbacks. 

Australian science, funding, programs and leadership have made a significant impact in the global fight against tuberculosis. Together with partners collaborating to end TB globally, Results Australia has prepared a brief outlining Australia’s contribution to the global effort to test, treat and prevent TB, and recommendations to do more.

 

To accelerate efforts in the fight against TB,

Australia must:

  • Mobilise additional funds and expand access
    to quality and affordable TB prevention,
    diagnosis, treatment and care

  • Partner with governments in our region to
    strengthen programs for TB, with priority action
    on equity, inclus
    ion, gender and human rights

  • Accelerate the research, development, roll-out
    and acce
    ss to new TB tools, vaccines,
    diagnostics and treatments, and approaches
    such as screening and prevention

  • Provide support for decisive and accountable
    global, regional, and national leadership to
    end 
    TB

  • Promote strong integration across the three
    H
    LMs and ensure an emphasis on strengthening
    health systems at the 2023 SDG Summit in
    New York.
