Tuberculosis: MSF letter to Latvia MOH and Health & Food Safety EU Commissioner

Ahead of the 1st Eastern Partnership Ministerial Conference on Tuberculosis (TB) and Multidrug Resistant Tuberculosis due to be held in Riga on  30-31 March, we share our experience and recommedations on how to address the deadly gaps in fighting TB.

This letter outlines MSF's involvement in TB care for the last 30 years and the main findings of our recent report Out of Step: Deadly Implementation Gaps in the TB Response. We propose the development of a high-level EU Action Plan for TB and hope that the conference results in the commitment of participants to this plan.
