Developing new TB vaccines by 2030 is within reach if decision-makers prioritize TB vaccine R&D as a signature piece of global health and AMR agendas.

The TB Vaccine Advocacy Roadmap (TB Vax ARM) released a policy brief elaborating on the urgent need of developing new TB vaccines to tackle antimicrobial resistance (AMR).

"Vaccines that prevent TB disease would save millions of lives, avert billions of dollars in treatment costs, and help curb the threat of AMR."
