We, the undersigned civil society and community-based organizations, welcome the announcement by Unitaid and its partners that they have reached an agreement with Lupin Limited and Macleods Pharmaceuticals to introduce two formulations of rifapentine at competitive prices.
Inspired by the legacy of Dr. Paul Farmer, the 1 / 4 / 6 x 24 Campaign calls for the "staff, stuff, space, systems and support" necessary to make groundbreaking short-course TB prevention and treatment regimens accessible to all who need them as a human right by the end of 2024.
In 2021, the Global Tuberculosis Community Advisory Board (TB CAB) celebrated its tenth anniversary of advocating for community engagement in research and improved access to TB prevention, treatment, and diagnostic technologies.
We applaud the New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene (DoHMH) for its leadership as one of the first TB programs in the U.S. and globally to introduce a new four-month regimen for the treatment of drug-susceptible tuberculosis (TB).
Treatment Action Group welcomes the tuberculosis (TB) data reported at the 2022 Conference on Retroviruses and Opportunistic Infections (CROI). This is a summary of major findings — and TAG’s take on them.
In this brief, TAG outlines the pathway the EU can take to scale up support for TB R&D, and advance the many European-sponsored TB vaccine candidates currently in the development pipeline.
As we look forward to an end of an extremely challenging year—and past four years—we reflect on the remarkable resilience and impact of TAG, even and especially in these dark times.
This new report offers recommendations to ensure access to long-acting technologies throughout the research and development process.
After a decades-long wait, shorter treatment for drug-sensitive tuberculosis (TB) for adults and children is finally possible. Two landmark clinical trials (S31/A5349 and SHINE) have demonstrated that adults, adolescents, and some children can be cured of TB in as little as four months.
Today's Global TB Report from WHO confirms our worst expectations for how COVID-19 has set back the global TB response. The pandemic has reversed an entire generation of progress. The first year-on-year increase in TB deaths since 2005 is devastating.
