Tuberculosis Research Funding Trends, 2005–2018 |

Publisher:  Treatment Action Group

“TAG has tracked TB research and development (R&D) funding since 2005 as one way to evaluate progress on eliminating TB. In every year since then, annual investments have fallen far short of the widely accepted US$2 billion minimum funding target. At the United Nations High-Level Meeting on TB (HLM) in the fall of 2018, delegates endorsed a political declaration that contained a commitment to increase annual global TB research funding to US$2 billion. The data presented in this year’s report represent expenditures on TB research in fiscal year 2018 and provide the baseline against which we will measure states’ performance towards this US$2 billion annual target in the years to come.”
