Join USAID Administrator Mark Green to learn about the progress that has been made on the first anniversary of USAID’s Global Accelerator to End Tuberculosis (TB).

In September 2018, the United Nations General Assembly High-Level Meeting (UNHLM) on TB set the stage for high-level attention and action on TB and established the ambitious target of diagnosing and enrolling an additional 40 million people on TB treatment by 2022, with a focus on countries with the highest TB burden. At this meeting, USAID Administrator Mark Green announced the Agency’s new TB business model – the Global Accelerator to End Tuberculosis. One year in, join us to learn about and celebrate the progress made to date.
