Leaders on TB and HIV efforts pledge to work in partnership to save a million lives
The details of a new epidemiological model showing it is possible to sharply reduce AIDS deaths worldwide by preventing and treating TB were presented at the evening's start by Jorge Sampaio, the UN Secretary General's Special Envoy to Stop TB and former President of Portugal. The model, which provides a clear blueprint for saving lives, was produced through a joint effort by the Stop TB Partnership, WHO and UNAIDS.
