Political declaration of the High-Level Meeting of the General Assembly on the Fight Against Tuberculosis : resolution / adopted by the General Assembly

On 26 September, 2018, the first ever UN General Assembly High-Level Meeting on Tuberculosis assembled in New York. The meeting resulted in the adoption of a Political Declaration on Tuberculosis, which reaffirmed commitment to end the tuberculosis epidemic globally by 2030 and included ambitious and bold targets for scale-up of tuberculosis care and prevention services, as well as commitments on research for new tools, principles of equity and human rights, and resource needs targets for both implementation and research.

Global Tuberculosis Report 2021

Each year, the WHO Global TB Report provides a comprehensive and up-to-date assessment of the TB epidemic, and of progress in prevention, diagnosis and treatment of the disease, at global, regional and country levels. This is done in the context of global TB commitments, strategies and targets.

The 2021 edition of the report has been produced in a new and more web-centric format. This is designed to make the content available in smaller (more “bite-sized”) chunks that are easier to read, digest, navigate and use. There is a short and slim report PDF with 30 pages of main content plus six short annexes. This is accompanied by expanded and more detailed digital content on web pages. The total amount of content remains similar to that of previous years.

Please note that direct comparisons between estimates of TB disease burden in the latest report and previous reports are not appropriate. The most recent time-series of estimates are published in this global TB report.

Declaration of the Right of People Affecred By Tuberculosis

Declaration of the Rights of People Affected by TB was developed by TBpeople Global with the support from the Stop TB Partnership and USAID through a participatory process, which involved numerous regional and global consultations and was supported by leading human rights lawyers Brian Citro, Allan Maleche and Timur Abdullaev. For the first time, the rights of people affected by TB that are enshrined in existing global and regional human rights laws are listed in one declaration alongside an explanation of their relevance for people affected by TB. This innovative declaration aims to inform and empower people and communities affected by TB to be able to claim and protect their right to a life free from TB and when necessary to ensure equitable access to quality TB prevention, diagnosis and treatment, free from stigma and discrimination. The declaration also seeks to ensure that governments and other service providers are aware of their commitments and obligations to protect and promote the rights of people affected by TB.
