Advocacy campaign and petition call for universal access to six-month drug-resistant TB cures

The Fast Track the Cure campaign demands universal access to six-month drug-resistant TB cure by 2024.

Recent scientific breakthroughs have led to simple, safe, effective, and faster cures for drug-resistant TB (DR-TB) that are endorsed by the World Health Organization. These six-month cures reduce the length of treatment by a year or more and the number of pills needed to treat DR-TB by 95%. Unfortunately, many people suffering with DR-TB around the world are still unable to access them.

In support of World Health Organization’s call to action to accelerate access to shorter DR-TB cures for all, the Fast Track the Cure campaign brings communities around the world together to raise their voices to tell world leaders that six-month DR-TB cures must be widely adopted and available to all who need them.

Sign the campaign petition demanding universal access to new, shorter, and effective six-month DR-TB treatments by 2024. The petition will be presented to world leaders at the UN High-Level Meeting on TB to be held on 22 September 2023.
