Tuberculosis is the world's leading infectious killer, causing more than 4,000 deaths every day. As the lead U.S. Government agency for international TB care efforts, USAID is committed to reach every person with TB, cure those in need of treatment, and prevent new TB infections, as outlined in the U.S. Government Global TB Strategy and the recently released White House National Action Plan for Combating Multidrug-Resistant Tuberculosis.
