Home Symposium Global Tuberculosis Symposium 2021


The World Health Organization (WHO) is organizing a special symposium to mark the launch of the 2021 Global Tuberculosis Report. The symposium will also showcase the work undertaken by countries, partners, civil society and WHO across all three levels, to ramp up the TB response, especially in the context of the COVID-19 pandemic.

TB remains one of the top infectious killers in the world. This year’s Global Tuberculosis Report highlights the extent to which the COVID-19 pandemic has reversed years of progress and disrupted access to essential TB services. It also presents the status of progress towards targets set at the first-ever United Nations General Assembly high-level meeting on TB in 2018 as well as the targets of the WHO End TB Strategy and the Sustainable Development Goals.


The symposium will bring together countries, partners and civil society linked to the TB response globally and nationally to discuss how the TB response can be accelerated in the coming 12 months to reach the 2022 UN High Level Meeting targets, and discuss preparations for the 2023 UN High Level Meeting on TB.


Date: OCTOBER 18, 2021 12:30H-15:00H CEST
