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

Held in New York on 26 September 2018, the first-ever United Nations (UN) High-Level Meeting (HLM) on Ending Tuberculosis (TB) produced a historic Political Declaration, with specific, measurable milestones to achieve by 2022.

By adopting this declaration, national leaders have said they recognise TB as a challenge they are essential to solving. They have committed to taking specific actions. The day to begin implementing this new agenda begins now.

Despite clear requests from The Union and our partners, the TB political declaration included no commitments to a robust and independent mechanism for ensuring accountability for action. In its absence, we will continue working with our members and partners around the world to establish a mechanism for monitoring progress and holding governments accountable for delivering on their commitments.
