The problem: Every year hundreds of thousands of children will become ill with TB and tens of thousands will die. Often TB goes undetected in children. Infants and young children are at special risk of having severe, often fatal forms of TB, such as TB meningitis, which can leave them blind, deaf, paralyzed or mentally disabled.
What we do: TB can be cured with treatment that costs US $3.00 a day. Through our TB REACH initiative we support projects that use innovative and effective techniques to find children and adults with TB fast, avert deaths and stop TB from spreading.
