This is the recording of special webinar hosted to mark 2018 World TB Day. The theme of World TB Day 2018 - "Wanted: Leaders for a TB-free world" - focuses on building commitment to end TB, not only at the political level with heads of State, and ministers of health, but at all levels. All can be leaders of efforts to end TB in their own work or terrain.
This is a critical theme, given the political importance of the upcoming UN General Assembly high-level meeting on TB later this year, which will bring together Heads of State in New York. It follows on from a very successful Ministerial Conference on Ending TB in Moscow on 16-17 November, 2017 which resulted in high-level commitments from Ministers and other leaders from 120 countries to accelerate progress to end TB.
