UNGA HLMOn 26th of September, at least 40 Heads of State will gather in New York at the United Nations General Assembly first-ever High Level Meeting on Tuberculosis. It is the most significant political meeting ever held on TB. The meeting will result in a Political Declaration on TB endorsed by Heads of State that will form the basis for the future TB response.

It should secure commitment from Heads of State and government for a coordinated global response, agree to substantially increase financial resources for TB, and lead to millions of lives saved from premature deaths from TB. It should endorse measurable targets and commitments from governments and key stakeholders for 2020 and 2025, and a robust accountability system with regular monitoring and evaluation.
