Motion text

That this House recognises the enormous human and economic cost of the global tuberculosis (TB) epidemic which claims 1.5 million lives a year and severely damages the health and wellbeing of nine million people every year; highlights the particular threat posed by Multi-Drug Resistant TB, which is the only major, airborne, drug-resistant infection; acknowledges the estimates by the independent Review of Anti-Microbial Resistance that MDR-TB could claim an additional 75 million lives worldwide by 2050 at a cost of $16.7 trillion; is concerned by high rates of TB in the UK, particularly in major urban centres; and calls for greater resources to be invested in tackling the disease abroad, in the UK, and in research and development of new treatments, diagnostics and vaccines.
