MSF Calls for TB Treatment Research

New York, March 23, 2000 — There is an urgent need for practical and affordable treatments for tuberculosis. TB kills 2 million people each year. Almost all of these deaths occur in the developing world.

However, there is almost no research and development for new medicines. Despite a wealth of knowledge on TB, the last novel medicine was developed over 30 years ago and the last vaccine in 1923.
