Each year, Tuberculosis (TB) claims 1.6 million lives, and over 10 million people become infected with a disease that is preventable and treatable, yet it remains woefully neglected and underfunded in many countries.

What is this about

TB is a global epidemic, yet more than 95% of TB deaths occur in lower-income countries. It is vital that world leaders put TB back in the spotlight to ensure countries have the resources they need to prevent and treat TB.

Why this is important

Tuberculosis is the world’s deadliest infectious disease and the leading cause of death for people living with HIV. The World Health Organization estimates finances were less than 40% of what was needed to prevent and treat TB in 2022. Additionally, approximately 20% of the global population has laten TB.

Why You Should Care

TB knows no borders and can affect anyone in any country. The longer the world waits to prioritize tuberculosis as major threat to global public health, millions avoidable deaths will continue to mount.

Who we are & what we do

AIDS Healthcare Foundation (AHF) is the world’s largest AIDS organization with more than 1.7 million clients in care throughout 45 countries.

AHF has made TB a top priority across its country teams by educating staff and clients, screening for TB in our clinics, and prioritizing, preventing, and treating HIV/TB co-infection, the leading cause of death for people living with HIV. 

On World TB Day, AHF advocates sent letters to 45 heads of state in their respective countries, urging them to personally attend the UN High-Level Meeting on TB this October.

United, we can end TB.
