Talking TB: The Road to 2030

Details

September 22
8:30 am - 12:00 pm EDT
Add to Calendar September 22 8:30 am September 22 12:00 pm America/New_York Talking TB: The Road to 2030

Tuberculosis is a preventable and largely treatable disease, yet it takes the lives of 1.5 million people every year, making it the deadliest infectious disease worldwide before the COVID-19 pandemic.

The global community has already signed up to make significant progress against the disease by the end of 2022, but it doesn’t look like we’ll meet those targets from the 2018 U.N. high-level meeting on TB.

With deadlines quickly approaching, Devex with Stop TB Partnership will bring global health leaders together to focus on what’s needed to accelerate progress for ending TB by 2030.

On the sidelines of UNGA 77, we’ll explore:

  • The actions and funding needed to implement the Global Plan to End TB 2023-2030.
  • What needs to be accomplished at next year’s 2023 U.N. high-Level meeting on TB.
  • The digital innovations, vaccine candidates, and promising clinical trials that could lead us to better accessible treatment.

Join us online for the livestream as we shape the agenda for these next crucial years to end TB by 2030.

Please note that registration for the in-person event is invite only. To request an invitation to attend, please complete the application form here.
