Tuberculosis (TB)

Looking beyond 2015

Proposed Global strategy and targets for tuberculosis prevention, care and control after 2015

At the World Health Assembly (WHA) 2012, Ministers of Health called on the World Health Organization to develop a post-2015 TB strategy and accompanying targets for their consideration in 2014. The Global TB Programme in consultation with countries, WHO country and regional offices, and partners has developed a draft strategy framework.

The Executive Board reviewed the WHO proposed global strategy and targets for TB prevention, care and control after 2015 in January 2014. The Executive Board endorsed and recommended, the post-2015 global TB strategy and targets and a resolution (in support of the strategy and targets) for consideration and adoption by the Sixty-seventh World Health Assembly (WHA) which meets in May 2014.
