Global TB

EDM number 128 in 2015-16, proposed by Virendra Kumar Sharma on 15/06/2015.
Categorised under the topics of Diseases and Research and innovation.

That this House recognises the enormous human and economic cost of the global tuberculosis (TB) epidemic which claims 1.5 million lives a year and severely damages the health and wellbeing of nine million people every year; highlights the particular threat posed by Multi-Drug Resistant TB, which is the only major, airborne, drug-resistant infection; acknowledges the estimates by the independent Review of Anti-Microbial Resistance that MDR-TB could claim an additional 75 million lives worldwide by 2050 at a cost of $16.7 trillion; is concerned by high rates of TB in the UK, particularly in major urban centres; and calls for greater resources to be invested in tackling the disease abroad, in the UK, and in research and development of new treatments, diagnostics and vaccines.

This motion has been signed by a total of 41 MPs.
