March 20, 2019—Ahead of World TB Day, we welcome the release today of the report from Lancet Commission on Tuberculosis, which provides a much-needed framework for delivering on the political commitments made by Heads of State and Government in October last year at the United Nations High-Level Meeting on Tuberculosis.
Congratulations to the Aurum Ghana team! The "TB REACH Wave 6" application, 1109: Engaging private health providers & National Health Insurance to scale up active TB case finding among vulnerable populations, was part of 42 applications, selected out of over 570, for funding.
Unitaid is investing US$59 million in Aurum's IMPAACT4TB (Increasing Market and Public health outcomes through scaling up Aﬀordable Access models of short Course preventive therapy for TB) project, to prevent people most vulnerable to developing active TB, including people living with HIV and children under age five, from developing active TB disease.
