High level TB Symposium: Translating commitments made at the United Nations High Level Meeting on Tuberculosis (UNHLM) into country actions

Organised by Stop TB Partnership, The Global Fund and AMREF Health Africa

Held in New York on 26 September 2018, the first-ever United Nations High-Level Meeting ((UNHLM) on TB committed a historic Political Declaration, with specific, measurable milestones to be achieved by the end of 2022. By adopting this declaration, Heads of states and governments recognised TB as a major public health challenge and committed to taking specific actions to end it. The symposium will discuss and agree on how to translate the UNHLM Political Declaration into concrete actions that will help African countries reach their targets.
