Impact(s): Twenty-two developing countries account for 80% of the world’s TB cases; the disease kills more than 1.1 million people each year in those countries. Furthermore, TB is a serious and common co-infection for HIV-infected individuals. Because TB is transmitted in the air when an infected person coughs or sneezes, effective treatment of persons with the disease is critical to interrupting the transmission of TB. The results achieved are expressed in terms of national trends attributable to US resources leveraged with funds from other donors, in particular the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, TB, and Malaria (GFATM).
