Lilly Foundation Commits US $30 Million to The Lilly MDR-TB Partnership
Date:10/26/2011

LILLE, France, Oct. 27, 2011 /PRNewswire/ --  The Eli Lilly and Company Foundation has committed US $30 million in funding to further support The Lilly MDR-TB Partnership in its fight against multidrug-resistant tuberculosis – a disease that disproportionately affects developing countries and kills more than 150,000 people each year. The announcement was made ahead of the opening of the 42nd Union World Conference on Lung Health in Lille, France, later this week.

Eli Lilly and Company (NYSE: LLY) launched The Lilly MDR-TB Partnership in 2003 to strengthen the global battle against multidrug-resistant tuberculosis (MDR-TB). Lilly originally committed US $70 million to launch the partnership, elevate MDR-TB on the global health agenda and transfer technology for two Lilly medicines used to treat MDR-TB to other manufacturers. In 2007, Lilly expanded the original duration and scope for the partnership by committing an additional US $50 million to the collaboration – and another US $15 million for early drug discovery efforts – to complete the technology transfer and to further strengthen awareness, prevention and care for patients who suffer from MDR-TB and TB.

The Lilly Foundation has now committed an additional US $30 million to support a third and final stage of the partnership. This funding will be used to advance the partnership's efforts in two key areas of focus over the next five years (2012-2016):

  • Providing training for healthcare providers – from professional healthcare workers such as nurses and doctors, to informal care givers, such as community volunteers.
  • Improving supply and access to safe, effective and quality-assured second-line drugs – currently less than one percent of MDR-TB patients globally receive appropriate second-line treatment.
