Weak health systems that cannot provide a full spectrum of quality care combined with the double burden of NCDs and TB impede economic growth and undermine progress toward global poverty eradication, including existing and future development goals such as universal health coverage (UHC). With WHO Director-General Tedros making UHC his top priority and with the UN High-Level Meetings on NCD and TB approaching, it is a strategic time for the NCD and TB communities to coordinate efforts and use integrated care to show how health systems can address multiple health challenges in low-resource settings.
ACTION, Global Health Council, NCD Roundtable, and the STOP TB Partnership cordially invite you to a discussion on how the UHC agenda will need to address the double burden of NCDs and TB in low- and middle- income countries. RSVP by May 17: https://tinyurl.com/uhcncdtb.
