Global Fund and The Union deepen partnership to fight TB

The Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria (the Global Fund) and The Union announced a partnership agreement in which both organisations will explore innovative financing instruments to galvanise resources among the private sector to reach the global goal of ending the TB epidemic by 2030.

The joint project will also entail a fundraising campaign to encourage individuals, corporations, foundations and other private entities to make contributions to support efforts to eliminate TB. The key benefitting countries of the fundraising will be India, Myanmar and Zimbabwe, which are among WHO’s list of 30 high TB burden countries.
