Every day, nearly 700 children die from tuberculosis (TB), 80% of those before attaining 5 years of age. Ending child deaths from TB must remain a top priority at global, national and community levels. This brochure presents key facts and figures about childhood TB as well as an agenda to end the disease in children worldwide. While identifying the gaps at various stages of TB control programs, it also emphasizes the need for political commitment, targeted investment and coordinated multi-sectoral planning and service delivery to change the game for children with TB. This resource can be useful for policy makers. Click here to access the brochure.
