Ending TB: right dose, right time

Date and time: 11 April 2022 at 9:00 EDT | 15:00 CEST

Description:
TB is a treatable disease. Yet the rise of drug resistance means that even if people are correctly diagnosed, their chances of survival hinge on receiving the right treatment in a timely manner. Meanwhile, the only TB vaccine is over a century old and has limited applications.

FIND, TB Alliance, and IAVI are bringing together a panel of experts to review the tools we have in our hands today that have the potential to end TB for good, and what is needed to bring them to scale and achieve public health impact starting now.
