This is TB's moment
UN High Level Meeting on TB: September 26, 2018

Our Mission

The Office of the UN Secretary-General’s Special Envoy on Tuberculosis has been working with organizations and leaders around the world on the first-ever UN High Level Meeting on TB on September 26, 2018.  This highly anticipated convening will discuss issues such as finding the missing 4.1 million people who have TB, but have not yet been located; focusing on more research and innovation; and investing significant funds on prevention and treatment efforts.


The work of the UN Special Envoy is supported by a World Health Organization (WHO) Secretariat based in the Global TB Programme, which provides guidance for the Special Envoy’s key activities.
