Date:3/12/2008

Finally, the grant will support the field-testing and evaluation of a new information system to record and report on MDR-TB rates in two countries.

"This grant represents Lilly's continued commitment to support the WHO in its goal of treating 50 million TB patients and 1.6 million MDR-TB patients by 2015. It builds upon existing WHO and Lilly program successes in curbing the MDR-TB pandemic," says Alex Azar, senior vice president of corporate affairs and communications for Lilly.
