The UNGA will hold a high-level meeting on 26 September 2018 on the theme, ‘United to End Tuberculosis: an Urgent Global Response to a Global Epidemic.’ The outcome document will take the form of a political declaration. A draft was placed under silence procedure on 20 July but the silence was broken, and “the next steps will be communicated to Member States in due course,” according to a letter from UNGA President Miroslav Lajcak.
The SDG Knowledge Hub summary of the one-day event, during which world leaders agreed to mobilize US$13 billion per year to finance TB prevention and treatment by 2022, and promised another US$2 billion per year for TB research, is here.
