UN General Assembly formally adopts Resolution on Political Declaration on TB

The United Nations General Assembly has formally adopted by consensus the Political Declaration of the High-Level Meeting on the Fight against Tuberculosis.

Member States discussed and adopted the Declaration through UN Resolution A/78/L.4, which is now available in all UN languages. This follows the Declaration’s adoption at the High-Level Meeting on TB on 22 September. This critical step gives the Declaration the full endorsement and support of all UN Member States.
