World TB Day, March 24, is a good opportunity for us to acknowledge last December Canada’s major contribution of $650 million over three years to the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, TB and Malaria.

It's also a very good opportunity to encourage our country to maintain its role as a world leader in this field by also contributing to the financing of the TB REACH initiative.

Let’s remember that in 2009 Canada pledged $120 million to the Stop TB Partnership to found the TB REACH initiative — an incredible mechanism focused on using community-driven programming to promote early and increased case detection of TB cases and ensure their timely treatment.

 It would be wonderful, indeed, if the Canadian Governement would accept contributing again to the TB REACH financing up to $40 million per year over the next five years.
