Zero Accountability: When Action Doesn't Match the Numbers


Please join us for a symposium at the
2014 International Union Against TB and Lung Disease World Conference:

Zero Accountability: When Action Doesn't Match the Numbers

The response to the declared MDR-TB emergency has been inadequate. According to the World Health Organization, in 2012 an estimated 450,000 people developed MDR-TB, and yet less than 1 in 5 were diagnosed and treated. This symposium will focus on the current state of research and development for MDR-TB, including the complexity and duration of existing treatments and key access issues, including pricing and the uptake of new drugs and regimens.
Keynote speaker Mark Dybul, Executive Director, Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria, will talk about financing the emergency response.
Date: Thursday, October 30, 2014
Time: 18h00–20h30
