Take action against drug resistant TB – help MSF reach 50,000 signatures by May 19th

Dear Partners and Colleagues,

Next week, Phumeza Tisile, a former patient and survivor of one of the most severe forms of drug-resistant tuberculosis (DR-TB), will travel to Geneva to help Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) deliver the ‘Test Me, Treat Me’ DR-TB Manifesto directly to governments and policymakers as they convene for the 2014 World Health Assembly.

With World Health Assembly delegates due to discuss the next global 20-year plan to control TB, MSF and Phumeza will be appealing for urgent action to prioritize the fight against drug-resistant forms of TB which have been reported in virtually all countries worldwide and are spreading at an alarming rate.

MSF has set a goal of 50,000 supporting signatures to help send a strong message to WHA delegates

What does it mean when you sign the petition to support the ‘Test Me, Treat Me’ DR-TB Manifesto Campaign?

You are showing your support for three urgent demands being made by DR-TB patients and their medical care providers:

1) universal access to testing and treatment
2) better treatment regimens
3) international financial support for the fight against DR-TB

Please take a minute to sign the petition now and help MSF reach their 50,000 signature goal by May 19th.

With best regards,

Dr Lucica Ditiu
Executive Secretary of the Stop TB Partnership
