Funding Cuts Put TB Patients at Risk

NGOs warn that funding shortfall to fight TB will leave TB patients untreated

The NGOs says a US$1.7 billion funding shortfall to fight tuberculosis (TB) over the next five years means 3.4 million patients will go untreated and gains made against the disease will be reversed.

In a joint statement, the International HIV/AIDS Alliance, the Stop AIDS Campaign and anti-poverty group Results UK, say over the next two years, the Stop TB Partnership estimates that globally 244 000 people will go untreated for TB, 40 percent of them living in Mozambique and Tanzania.

The further argue that, "The problem is that infectious diseases don't slow down when the money slows down - they keep infecting and that's building up a bigger problem for us to deal with in the future."
