Siloed no more: Leveraging TB investments to strengthen primary health care

March 22, 2022 by PATH

Despite being preventable and treatable, tuberculosis (TB) remains one of the world’s most deadly diseases, causing 1.5 million deaths per year. But in recent years, TB care has improved greatly, and these advancements have been adapted to support people living with other infectious diseases. Today, public health decision-makers and practitioners have the opportunity to scale these developments further across health systems.

In this PATH Live Forum, representatives from the public and nonprofit sectors as well as a TB survivor and champion for comprehensive care will explore how insights and lessons from TB care can strengthen primary health care systems that put patients first.
