Status of initiative: N/a
Description/achievement of initiative

The Stop TB Partnership commits to advocating and mobilizing political support for the Every Woman Every Child effort. Reducing illness and deaths from tuberculosis (TB) is essential to improving maternal and child health. In many low- and middle-income countries women and children, like other vulnerable groups, lack access to accurate diagnosis and high-quality treatment of TB. Over the next five years at least 3 million women and half a million children will die from TB, even though it is a curable illness. The Partnership will accelerate the downward trend in maternal and child mortality by advocating for improved access to TB prevention, diagnosis and treatment, especially in pregnant women; mothers; women and children living with HIV; and those whose vulnerability to TB is heightened by poverty or social isolation. Stop TB Partners will ensure there is a special focus on saving the lives of women as they implement the Global Plan to Stop TB 2011-2015: Transforming the fight towards Elimination and the Partnership's initiative to save a million lives among people living with HIV by preventing and treating TB by 2015.
