Stop TB Partnership

An activist’s guide to TB drugs: Treatment Action Group

29 May 2014 - New York/ Geneva - If you are looking for latest information on tuberculosis (TB) drugs, check out An Activist’s Guide to Tuberculosis Drugs, a new guide from Treatment Action Group (TAG).

The guide provides a summary of safety and efficacy data for drugs currently in use to treat TB. This resource also highlights research and access gaps for advocacy by activists, clinicians, and others working in TB.

In partnership with the HIV Online Provider Education (HOPE) program and Harvard University Center for AIDS Research, TAG will host a webinar, The TB Arsenal: Know Your Drugs, to orient participants to the guide and to discuss key research and access issues for TB medicines. To learn how you can contribute to the development and uptake of improved TB treatment by calling attention to research, quality of medications, and access priorities, please join us on Tuesday, June 10th at 8:00 a.m. U.S. Eastern Daylight Time.

TAG, an independent AIDS research and policy think tank, works for better treatment, a vaccine, and a cure for AIDS. TAG works to ensure that all people with HIV receive lifesaving treatment, care, and information.
