STOP TB Campaign 2011

The World TB Day 2011 campaign web site is now live here. This site is sponsored by the Stop TB Partnership.

2011 is the second year of the two-year campaign of the Stop TB Partnership, On the move against tuberculosis, whose goal is to galvanize innovation in TB care and research. 

It is inspired by the ambitious new objectives and targets of the Global Plan to Stop TB 2011-2015: Transforming the Fight-Towards Elimination of Tuberculosis,  which was launched by the Stop TB Partnership in October 2010. This new plan, for the first time, identifies all the research gaps that need to be filled to bring rapid TB tests, faster treatment regimens and a fully effective vaccine to market and, therefore to the people who need them.
