    Letter on US-based TB needs to Ambassador Nikki Haley - Signatures requested by August 17

    August 1 —On September 26, 2018, there is a United Nations High-level Meeting on Tuberculosis. NTCA is working with other TB partners to ensure that the United States is seen as more than a donor country. We want to have the challenges and resource constraints which we face as a low-burden TB country to also be recognized. To this end, a letter has been developed to introduce the US-based TB needs to Ambassador Nikki Haley. This letter is written to provide education about TB in the US but also to underscore the importance of the US mission having strong leadership during these talks. We ask that you consider adding your name to what we hope will be a large and diverse list from the TB community.
