Welcome Dr. Harsh Vardhan, India’s Minister of Health, as new Chair of Stop TB Partnership

KNCV Tuberculosis Foundation welcomes His Excellency Dr. Harsh Vardhan as the new chair of the Stop TB Partnership Board. We are confident that the Stop TB Partnership under the leadership of Dr. Harsh Vardhan will continue to accelerate in elevating tuberculosis (TB) on global, regional, and national agendas.

As Union Minister of Health and Family Welfare in India, Dr. Vardhan knows what it takes to translate strong political commitment to ending TB by 2025 in India to driving progress on the ground unabatedly. This includes an effective strategy in fighting COVID-19 and TB at the same time, following an initially devastating impact of COVID-19 on TB services in the early months of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Stop TB Partnership’s vision is a TB-free world and will benefit greatly from the strategic vision and on-the-ground perspectives of Dr. Vardhan, as the TB community collectively works towards all countries reaching the UN TB targets for 2022 and staying on course to Ending TB by 2030.

We assure you of KNCV Tuberculosis Foundation support and commitment in this journey and wish you success with this assignment.
