Can you whack TB off the face of the earth? Play our game and learn more about fighting TB!
You played the game. You know TB isn't standing still.
TB is moving around the world—on planes, trains, buses—and in the air we breathe. There are almost 9 million new cases of TB each year; about 500,000 of these cases are resistant to the best TB drugs available to fight them.
TB isn't standing still, but we are.
Funding for agencies leading the fight in research against TB isn't moving forward. The budget for NIH is stagnant. Funding for the CDC is being cut. These agencies are key players in the development of vaccines and drugs to combat the spread of TB. We need more money for research to fight global diseases like TB.
Support our nation's TB research at NIH and The CDC. It's an investment in the world's—and America's—health.
Research is the only way we'll whack TB once and for all. Families USA's Global Health Initiative fights for funding to find new ways to combat global diseases like TB. How can you be a part of this fight?
