World Tuberculosis Symposium

On Friday, Nick will visit the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine to speak at the World TB Symposium, which will bring together a wide range of academics and medics to discuss how best to tackle the world's biggest infectious deadly disease.  World TB Day falls on 24 March, to commemorate the day of Dr Robert Koch's discovery of tuberculosis in 1882. 

Nick founded the Global TB Caucus, which has successfully campaigned for a UN High Level Meeting on Tuberculosis which will take place later this year.  Last week, Nick attended the Lancet Commission on Drug-Resistant Tuberculosis in New Delhi.
