Stop TB Partnership Has Provided Treatments for Ten Million People in Six Years

needed to treat MDR-TB, after the Stop TB Partnership's Green Light Committee has verified that applicant countries meet its technical standards and will use the drugs correctly.

"I congratulate the Stop TB Partnership on this accomplishment," said Dr Michel Kazatchkine, Executive Director of the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria.

He added, "The Global Drug Facility and the Global Fund together provide countries with financing and drugs that ensure better-run programmes and a continuous drug supply so that more patients take a full course of treatment, thereby lowering the risk of drug-resistant TB".

The Global Drug Facility provides countries with the drugs and supplies needed to diagnose and treat adults and children with both drug-sensitive and drug-resistant TB. Along with drug provision it provides direct technical assistance on drug management. The Global Drug Facility provides more anti-TB drugs--free of charge--to countries unable to pay for them than any other group.

It also procures anti-TB drugs for countries that have the means to buy them and can ship drugs on short notice in the event of a humanitarian or natural disaster, armed conflict, or other situation where life-saving anti-TB drugs are unavailable.

The Stop TB Partnership, which is hosted by WHO in Geneva, Switzerland, is a network of more then 500 international organizations, countries, donors from the public and private sectors, and nongovernmental and governmental organizations that are working together to eliminate TB.
