Our Vision: A World Free From TB
More than 9 million new cases emerge every year and 1.5 million people die. Yet they die needlessly, because TB is preventable and curable.
TB is not a disease of the past - it is right up there alongside malaria and HIV/AIDS as one of the world's biggest killers.
How we work
Our work is based around three key principals;
We have taken high quality diagnosis into some of the world's poorest countries. In Timor-Leste we have helped nearly 2,000 people receive high quality testing.
Treatment and Support
We ensure that people living in poverty receive the right treatment and are then supported to endure the treatment. We train local people as health workers to provide practical and emotional support to individuals and families affected by TB
Our investment in a world free from TB is education, novel, exciting and non-traditional engaging ways to inform people and communities about TB, it's symptoms and where to get help.
