26th September 2018 will see the first ever United Nations High-Level Meeting on TB

Tuberculosis (TB) is one of the top 10 causes of death worldwide. In 2016, 10.4 million people fell ill with TB, and 1.7 million died from the disease (including 0.4 million among people with HIV). Over 95% of TB deaths occur in low- and middle-income countries.

First-ever UN High Level Meeting (UNHLM) on TB will be held on 26 September 2018 in New York. The UNHLM will be held on the theme “United to end tuberculosis: an urgent global response to a global epidemic”, and will bring together Heads of State to commit to accelerated action to end TB.


With early diagnosis and treatment, TB is preventable and curable but it is still a very real global epidemic. It will take political will and financial investment to develop an effective vaccine, cost-effective diagnostic tools and new drugs regimen appropriate for treatment. 

INCURE CU global mission on the UNHLM is saving lifes of people, who are affected by heavy forms of tuberculosis. Severe TB patients are currently treated with oral preparations of anti-TB medicines with confirmed effectiveness. However up to 80 percents of these patients die in intensive care units. 

Severe patients need to be identified into a separate group and should be given intensified therapy and intravenous forms of anti-TB drugs to reduce overall mortality.
