World Tuberculosis Day 2024

Yes! We Can End TB. Achieving the End TB goals relies on improving early diagnosis.

Diagnostic testing is critical to end TB

FIND is helping to make innovative, affordable TB diagnostics available where they are most needed. Learn more about the impact of our work and what still needs to happen to achieve the 2030 targets.

WHO consolidated guidelines on tuberculosis

Ahead of World TB Day, Unitaid and FIND welcome WHO resources to accelerate access to faster, more accurate tests for drug-resistant TB

A new WHO recommendation for targeted next-generation sequencing to detect TB drug resistance is underpinned by evidence generated through FIND’s Seq&Treat project, funded by Unitaid. It will help countries implement new technologies that can quickly identify resistance to a range of TB drugs and ensure that patients get the correct treatment with minimum delay.

TBPod: tuberculosis diagnostics & emerging technologies

On this podcast, delve into the world of TB diagnostics and the future of leveraged TB technologies with our Director of TB, Dr Morten Ruhwald. He elaborates on the current state of TB diagnostics, new clinical strategies, usability factors, and future TB perspectives.

To mark World Tuberculosis (TB) Day, we released this video with our partners, TB experts, and champions, showcasing how partnerships have transformed the management of TB in the past 20 years. Thank you to everyone who contributed! Yes! We Can End TB.
Next-generation sequencing is a game changer in the fight against drug-resistant TB, and the new WHO recommendation is proof of the power it holds. We still have plenty to do to make this technology more affordable, more available, and easier to use. But as more countries take advantage of it, we look forward to a future where it is an integral part of national health systems for surveillance and patient care, so that timely testing and appropriate treatment is available to all.
