Tuberculosis and HIV — Progress towards the 2020 Target. UNAIDS. (2019)


Most countries are not on track and too many people living with HIV are still dying from TB which is preventable and curable. The most vulnerable and the marginalized are still out of reach of HIV and TB services and in around 40 countries the number of TB deaths among people living with HIV is increasing. This is unacceptable.

Multisectoral Accountability Framework to Accelerate Progress to End Tuberculosis by 2030. WHO. (2019)


In November 2017, 117 national delegations adopted the Moscow Declaration to End TB at the first WHO Global Ministerial Conference on Ending TB: A Multisectoral Response. They committed to “supporting the development of a multisectoral accountability framework” to accelerate progress to end TB. They called on WHO to develop the framework, working in close cooperation with relevant partners.

At the 71st World Health Assembly (WHA) in May 2018, Member States welcomed the WHO draft multisectoral accountability framework (hereafter referred to as the MAF-TB). The WHA also requested the Director-General to continue to develop the MAF-TB, in consultation with Member States, and working in close collaboration with partners, as well as to provide technical support for national adaptation and use of the MAF-TB.

TB-HIV Factsheet 2018. Data Hub. (2018)


Concerted and integrated efforts are needed to prevent and address both TB and TB-HIV burden in the region.

2 out of 3 TB infections globally are in Asia and the Pacific and 60% of MDR-TB burden is in this region. Globally, Asia and the Pacific is the home for 13% of PLHIV but 20% of TB-HIV co-infections are in this region. Systematic collaboration between TB-HIV programmes will save lives and improve the quality of life of people living with and affected by HIV and TB.

Tuberculosis and HIV. UNAIDS. (2018)


HIV-associated TB presents a risk to achieving the Sustainable Development Goals. Effective, sustained action is required to meet the needs of the most vulnerable populations.

United Nations Member States have committed to work towards the target of reducing deaths related to tuberculosis (TB) among people living with HIV by 75% by 2020, as well as reaching 90% of all people with TB with preventive or therapeutic treatment and achieving 90% treatment success for all people diagnosed with TB.
