The coalition for TB IMpact
About the Coalition
The Coalition for TB Impact is a group of like-minded non-profits, socially conscious corporations, and other organizations working together to build a healthier world by advocating for increased treatment for TB. We believe that resources are needed to combat both drug-susceptible and drug-resistant TB. The global Stop TB Partnership estimates that 91% of the additional funds needed to fully address the TB epidemic are for drug-susceptible TB.
What the Coalition Is Calling For
The Coalition's current advocacy action is to request the following from the United States Congress:
- A $150 million increase for the US Agency for International Development’s TB program.
- A focus on outcomes in government-funded TB programs. More government-supported TB programs should include explicit targets for the number of additional TB patients treated and should report on performance against those targets.
A bipartisan letter signed by 71 members of the House of Representatives has already called for a similar increase in funding.
