"Addressing poverty through quality TB control and research"
3 December 2009, Cancun, Mexico
Less than 3% of estimated 500,000 cases of MDR-TB that occurred in 2008 are diagnosed and treated in GLC approved projects or programmes.
Nonetheless, the number of HIV positive patients started on CPT and ART is about one-third of the milestones set in the Global Plan, and provision of IPT for HIV-positive people without TB remains extremely limited.
