The World Health Organization, The Union, the Stop TB Partnership, USAID, CDC, the Treatment Action Group and UNICEF will launch a roadmap outlining the path towards zero deaths from childhood tuberculosis.
Each year, more than 70,000 children under 15 years of age die from tuberculosis, a preventable and curable disease. The Childhood TB Roadmap is a call to action for all stakeholders in child health to move the world towards zero deaths. The Roadmap builds on what we already know about the disease to identify clear action steps that can save thousands of children's lives.
The Roapmap will be launched on 1 October in Washington, D.C. and available online from partner websites after that date.
