TB meetings in New York and Washington DC

Nick is in Washington DC and New York this week, holding meetings on TB and chairing a meeting of the Global TB Caucus in preparation for September's UN High Level Meeting, where Heads of State and government will meet to discuss the international approach to tackling Tuberculosis - the world’s deadliest communicable disease which claims 1.7 million lives every year. 

Before the weekend, Nick wrote a letter to the Prime Minister, co-signed by over 100 parliamentarians from all parties, requesting that she attend the UN High Level Meeting in person to show British leadership on the issue.

In February, Nick wrote an article on the importance of coordinated global action to fight TB, which you may be interested to read here.
