The Stop-TB Forum is a network of German NGOs.
Our goal is the global fight against tuberculosis (TB) because tuberculosis is not a disease of the past—it remains a current and pressing global health problem.
In 2014 about 9,6 million people got newly infected with TB, 1.5 million people died from it – the disease is now the globally single most important infectous agent.
We will not accept this! Our vision is a world free of tuberculosis.
The Stop-TB Forum therefore:
- Networks with German actors that work on tuberculosis
- Raises awareness about TB as a global health threat among the general public and political decision makers
The Stop-TB Forum works to:
- Improve the prevention and treatment of tuberculosis
- Encourage the research and development of new medicines, diagnostics and vaccines
Public support and political will are essential to effectively fight tuberculosis worldwide. This is the focus of the Stop-TB Forum.
