Motion text

That this House welcomes the publication of the Commission for Africa's report and the Government's recognition of the need to address the growing tuberculosis epidemic in Africa; notes that over nine million people in Africa are co-infected with TB and HIV and therefore commends the Government's support for the World Health Organisation's Two Diseases, One Patient Strategy for integrated TB and HIV care; recognises that TB is both curable and cost-effective to treat at a cost of about ú5 for a six-month course of drugs, and that 17 million patients have been treated under the internationally-recommended TB control strategy DOTS since 1995; regrets that only 17 per cent. of Global Fund to Fight AIDS, TB and Malaria funds goes to TB, even though TB caused about 32 per cent. of deaths from the three killer diseases in 2002; calls on the Government to ensure that the needs of all TB patients are met in Africa and other high burden countries by guaranteeing that the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, TB and Malaria is fully funded; further calls on the Government to increase direct budget support to African countries with high death rates from TB and TB/HIV to hire and train more health staff, and to increase community access to TB drugs in order to cure more people; urges the Government to take a leadership role at both the G8 summit and during its presidency of the EU by putting TB and the TB/HIV co-epidemic high on the agenda and by ensuring that the 2015 Millennium Development Goal on TB is achieved; and further calls on the Government to use the opportunity given by World TB Day on 24th March to demonstrate its commitment to eradicating this deadly, but curable disease.
