United Nations High-Level Meeting on Tuberculosis26 September | #UNHLMTB

The world is coming to terms with the reality of a pandemic of respiratory illness due to the novel coronavirus, COVID-19. Due, in part, to aggressive disease control measures in China, the early spread of the virus outside China was slow but it is now clear that there is sustained community transmission established in many countries. The entire world is in for a rough ride in the next few months with serious health, social and economic consequences for individuals, nations and the world.
