The 2018 UN UN High-Level Meeting on TB
Following a campaign launched by Dr Aaron Motsoaledi, then Chair of the Stop TB Partnership Board and Minister of Health of South Africa, in December 2016, and supported by high-level leaders and members of the Board, the United Nations General Assembly agreed to hold a High-Level Meeting on TB in September 2018 through a resolution endorsed by Member States at the UN Headquarters in New York.
The resolution was tabled by the Global Health and Foreign Policy Initiative, a UN country grouping that includes Brazil, France, Indonesia, Norway, Senegal, South Africa, and Thailand. The resolution, and specifically the text calling for the UNHLM on TB, was agreed unanimously by Member States, following a campaign by the global TB community and Stop TB partner organizations.
