Lilly Recognized with World Business and Development Award for Tuberculosis Initiative
Date:9/21/2010

essons learned in achieving even more.  Among Lilly's efforts has been the transfer of drug-making technology and expertise to companies in China, India, Russia, South Africa and elsewhere.

The Lilly MDR-TB Partnership was created to confront a disease so daunting that no single organization could fight it alone. Working in over 80 nations and with more than 20 partners, The Lilly MDR-TB Partnership has trained doctors and nurses to recognize, treat, monitor and prevent the spread of multidrug-resistant tuberculosis. They have raised awareness to de-stigmatize the disease, promoted prevention, researched drugs, improved treatment and advocated for some of the most vulnerable people in the world. Efforts are tailored to the needs of the individual nation and region.

About two billion people around the globe are infected with latent TB. Nearly two million people die each year -- 4,500 each day -- from a disease that is curable for those with access to care. Multidrug-resistant TB now strikes at least a half million people every year and, experts say, every person with MDR-TB may unknowingly infect up to 20 others, including their own family.

Introduced by the International Chamber of Commerce (ICC), the awards have become increasingly successful each year since they began in 2000. In 2004, the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) and the International Business Leaders Forum (IBLF) joined with ICC to organize the awards. The true spirit of the awards lies in the recognition of productive and innovative business-driven solutions to sustainable development.

The United Nations has devoted the year 2010 to building a renewed momentum around the MDGs, which have a deadline of 2015.  This year, special attention is focused on the role of business in development through an initiative known as the Business Call to Action. The 2010 World Business and Development Awards is one of the central events recognizing the many contributions
