TB Alliance Names Elana Robertson Senior Vice President, Market Access
Date:7/31/2014

g a master's degree in public health from the University of Liverpool in England.

"I've seen the devastation caused by tuberculosis first hand in my home country of South Africa and the burden the current treatments cause on the healthcare system and on patients," said Elana Roberston. "I am excited to join the global fight against this deadly disease by ensuring new drugs, which hold the potential to improve the lives of millions, are available to those in need."

Before joining the pharmaceutical industry, Ms. Robertson was a Lecturer in Physiology at the University of Witwatersrand and a researcher at the University of Stellenbosch.

Every year, 1.3 million people worldwide die from TB. It is estimated that the bacteria that causes TB infects one-third of the world's population. The current treatment is inadequate, and resistance to today's drugs is growing. New, faster-acting, simpler drug regimens are critical to defeating TB.
