Get Back on Track and TB Key Populations Reports: How You Can Use them at the Union World Conference on Lung Health |

Resources Available:

Talking Points:

  • Work done through the efforts of the Global Fund and its partners has saved 27 million lives; this is proof of the effectiveness of the global commitment to tackle the world’s deadliest infectious diseases, including tuberculosis.   However, If the world only maintains current levels of investments and programming, internationally agreed targets for 2025 and 2030 will be unattainable.
  • We have a historic opportunity to end the TB epidemic. Significant increases in international funding are needed immediately if the global goal to end tuberculosis is to be met.
  • TB is the world’s most lethal infectious disease, with over 10 million new cases each year, an estimated 1.8 million deaths annually, and many more at risk for infection and illness.
  • GFAN’s Get Back on Track Report released earlier this year, calls for a funding increase of more than 20% to the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria in its Sixth Replenishment – which includes a doubling of current Global Fund spending on TB – to ensure a fund of between $16.8 and $18 billion for 2020 to 2022.

The Global Fund is the largest financer of TB programs around the world, yet despite its efforts, we remain off track on our targets to eliminate TB.  In its Get Back on Track Report, @GFAdvocates calls for increased commitments for the 6th Replenishment of the Global Fund and a doubling of Global Fund spending on TB.

Because of limited resources, the @GlobalFund‘s Register of Unfunded Quality Demand has over $US22 million worth of #TB programming targeting key populations currently going unfunded.  A successful Global Fund replenishment in 2019 is needed to begin to close the gaps for key and vulnerable populations and expand access to high-quality, evidence-based programming that will get us back on track to end the TB epidemic.
