In just a few days – for the first time ever – leaders are gathering in Moscow for the “First WHO Global Ministerial Conference on ending TB in the Sustainable Development Era.” Our plan, along with our partner Médecins Sans Frontières, is to deliver a flood of signatures from concerned citizens around the world, united with people affected by TB, to tell government officials that the time is now to #StepUpforTB and provide the life-saving treatment people need!
 
Now is the time to tell political leaders that words are not enough.
 
Now is the time to tell them that they can save more lives with real action.
 
Now is the time to tell them that the whole world is watching—and that includes YOU.
 
Join the nearly 10,000 people who have taken action to #StepUpforTB and sign our petition today!
