Register now: Innovations for Tackling Tuberculosis in the Time of COVID-19: Part One of a Two-Part Workshop (July 22, 11 AM – 1 PM ET)
This public workshop is the first in a two-part series that examines the innovations needed to meet the targets for ending tuberculosis (TB) set by the WHO End TB Strategy for 2030 and affirmed by the United Nations High-Level Meeting on the Fight Against Tuberculosis. The workshop will feature presentations and discussions that will consider emerging technologies in diagnostic testing and vaccine development, improvements in TB treatment, and how to ensure increased and sustained commitments to reach the goal of ending TB in high burden countries despite the challenges from COVID-19.
This first session will provide an update on the current status, unmet needs, and promising advances in diagnostics, vaccines and therapeutics, and the critical need for new business models in sustainably combating TB.
CARB-X participants include Kevin Outterson, Executive Director, who will be a speaker during the workshop.
