25 October - 2016: Drastic Funding Shortfalls for TB Research2016: Drastic Funding Shortfalls for TB Research
25 October 2016 - Liverpool, UK - Funding for research for appropriate TB prevention, diagnosis and treatment dropped by more than USD 53 million despite the disease killing 1.8 million people in 2015, according to the latest report issued by Treatment Action Group (TAG) with support from the Stop TB Partnership. The world spent USD 620.6 million on TB research and development (R&D) last year, the lowest level of funding since 2008. This marks the second straight year that funding for TB R&D has fallen, showing that very little is being really done to end TB by 2030.

How did we end up in this situation? Many people think we defeated TB long ago, but this epidemic is much worse than we thought last year -- worse than we thought five years ago, than ten years ago. We all are denying a reality which has been slowly unfolding in front of us - TB is the new global emergency and since it is airborne, a TB emergency in one country makes it an emergency for every country.
