A Stop TB Campaign Concept Note

Stop TB Grassroots Based Strategy 

We collaborate with many other actors in the effort to end TB.

In 2019, the 30 high TB burden countries accounted for 87% of new TB cases.

Eight countries accounted for the 2/3 of the total TB burden with India leading the count, followed by Indonesia, China, the Philippines, Pakistan, Nigeria, Bangladesh and South Africa according to the Global Tuberculosis Report: WHO


The components of the Stop TB Strategy include:

1. Pursue high-quality DOTS expansion and enhancement

2. Address TB/HIV, MDR-TB and other special challenges

3. Contribute to health system strengthening

4. Engage all care providers 

5. Empower people living with TB
