The Global Plan to End TB 2016–2020 was designed to provide a costed plan for implementing the first five years of the End TB Strategy. It takes the End TB Strategy as its foundation and provides countries and policymakers with a path towards achieving the Strategy’s milestones.

The Global Plan presents a means for how the world can break out of the current trend of slow decline and “bend the curves” of incidence and mortality towards ending TB. It provides a set of people-centred targets that countries can use to guide their planning and an overview of the funding needed to end TB.

The development of the Global Plan has involved extensive inputs and contributions from research and development stakeholders, communities and civil society, and national TB programmes in a number of countries. These contributions have significantly informed the modelling work and composition of the investment packages included in the Global Plan.

To develop the Global Plan, the Stop TB Partnership Coordinating Board established a Task Force of 15 people, each representing an area of expertise or group of stakeholders within the TB community. The Global Plan development process was led by the Task Force, and informed by a two-month online web-based consultation and four regional consultation meetings in Addis Ababa, Bangkok, Buenos Aires, and Istanbul. Through these consultations, the task force gathered input from governments, TB programmes, donors, technical partners, other implementers, private sector providers, the corporate sector, civil society, and affected communities.
