Funding for TB response continues to decline despite the commitments our leaders have made towards financing TB programs. The case for investing in TB, thus, is foremost financial. Yet, the investment of hard work, resolve, emotion, and energy prove just as important as the monetary assets needed to end this preventable and curable disease.
This year’s World TB Day underscores how all of these investments build up to one common goal – saving lives. For World TB Day, let us remind our local and national leaders to keep their promise of investing in TB, saving lives, and achieving a #TBFreePH.
