    Do Your Part to Bend the Curve: A World Free of TB

    NTCA accomplished much in 2015: participated in making a World TB Day presence felt on Capitol Hill, introduced drug access alerts and close work with pharmaceutical companies, conducted a TB survivor training with Stop TB USA, provided travel grants to early career professionals, and convened workgroups on a variety of critical issues. We can do more. Donate now to strengthen NTCA to do even more in 2016 and bend the TB elimination curve!
