United States Government Global Tuberculosis Strategy: 2015-2019
Abstract: Together, the U.S. Government’s investments in international TB control and TB research have reaped phenomenal health dividends. Internationally, the U.S. Government has documented a
43 percent decrease in TB-related mortality and a 42 percent decrease in TB prevalence in U.S. Government-supported countries since 1990. These declines in TB prevalence and mortality have contributed substantially to overall global declines in TB prevalence and mortality.

This TB Strategy (2015–2019) lays out how the U.S. Government will direct and coordinate its investments in the global fight against TB between 2015 and 2019 to achieve even greater global health progress. Our efforts to combat TB internationally save and improve the lives of millions of people around the world and help protect American citizens from TB both at home and abroad.
