Roadmap for Childhood Tuberculosis

"Any child who dies from TB is one child too many," said Dr Mario Raviglione, Director, Global Tuberculosis Programme at WHO in commenting on the importance of this campaign. "TB is preventable and treatable, and WHO is working towards translating this roadmap to action in countries to stop children dying."

To build public awareness and offer a plan of action, in 2013 a group of seven partner organizations worked together to produce a new "Roadmap for Childhood Tuberculosis" with leadership from the Stop TB Partnership's Childhood TB Subgroup, the global umbrella that advocates for all TB-related topics.
