ELIMINATING TB BY 2050: AN ACCELERATED GLOBAL RESEARCH STRATEGY

PLEASE PARTICIPATE TO HELP TB RESEARCH MOVING FORWARD

As a member of the large TB community, you might well be aware of the fact that research is essential for speeding up progress towards Tuberculosis (TB) elimination by 2050. We need to ensure that key research needs are being addressed, opportunities identified and prioritized, and knowledge gaps filled. Research topics differ widely in their immediate and future importance for improved TB control, but all contribute to the spectrum of research that needs to be vigorously stimulated. Therefore, the Research Movement of the Stop TB Partnership proposes to consult a wide range of stakeholders in an open web-based consultation aiming to identify the top priorities in TB research.

This consultation is open to the global TB related community and all participants are encouraged to provide feedback on the relevance of the TB research and to comment on the research topics that are of highest priority.

Please spare some time to take the survey on http://www.stoptb.org/global/research/s1/

We need your help and support in bringing TB research forward to achieve the goal of TB elimination by 2050!
