New plan to eliminate tuberculosis
Shortfall of US$ 4.2 billion per year for TB care and crucial research must be filled
WHO "Each year about 9 million people contract tuberculosis and almost 2 million people die from it. To step up the fight against the disease, the Stop TB Partnership has released a global action plan for 2011-2015. The plan includes the development and production rapid tests and vaccines, and calls upon the international community for US$ 37 billion for its implementation."
