Search - Treat - Prevent

A Comprehensive Strategy

Stop TB Partnership’s Global Plan to End TB 2016-2020 provides a global context for how a paradigm shift against TB can happen. In support of this plan, AA&D and the Zero TB Initiative proposes that in specific sites, new strategies are required to treat patients promptly and effectively, search for and diagnose everyone who is sick with TB, and prevent future TB cases by stopping the transmission of TB.

A comprehensive approach integrates three simultaneous strands of activities: Search, Treat and Prevent. The resources below are geared toward activists and affected communities who demand a comprehensive program against TB.
