To #FightCOVID19, we can use the tools needed to #EndTB: infection control, artificial intelligence, x-rays, contact tracing, telemedicine and psycho-social support.
We at @StopTB call on global leaders to join forces to protect people affected by TB and especially vulnerable populations from #COVID19. It’s time to ensure we #LeaveNooneBehind.
Years of under-investment made #tuberculosis and its drug resistant forms the biggest infectious disease killer with over 4000 deaths per day. We can’t afford to repeat these mistakes and be unprepared for pandemics like #COVID19.
Most TB survivors have gone through the isolation, fear, discrimination and stigma that we are facing with #COVID19. Let’s hear their voices and learn resilience from them. #ItsTimeToEndTB
Healthcare workers are at the center of the fight against diseases such as #tuberculosis or #COVID19. We at @StopTB applaud their efforts and call on the TB community to show their support! #ItsTimeToEndTB
It’s time to recognize that people with #TB are vulnerable to #COVID19, including prisoners, migrants, people living with #HIV, those who are malnourished, living in poverty & others, and ensure access to TB diagnostics, treatment, care and support.
