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.

Congressional Support

A bipartisan letter signed by 71 members of the House of Representatives has already called for a similar increase in funding.
