Promising Developments in Global Tuberculosis Control
A Conversation with Dr. Peter Small
For too long, the international community has pursued a 19th-century approach to treating a 21st-century disease: tuberculosis (TB). The rise in cases of drug-resistant TB and the millions of annual deaths from the disease have highlighted the necessity of strengthening the international community’s response to TB. New scientific discoveries, diagnostic tools, technologies, and strategies for controlling the disease have recently emerged, all of which can be implemented in order to achieve progress in fighting domestic and global TB.
Please join Dr. Peter Small, Senior Program Officer at the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, for an interactive conversation about these promising developments in global TB prevention and control, including how they may improve U.S. global TB policies. Mr. Todd Summers, Senior Adviser with the CSIS Global Health Policy Center, will moderate the discussion.
