Urgent Action Needed to Avert TB Crisis

    1. Petition by

      The American Lung Association

Join the American Lung Association as we mark World TB Day.  Initially founded to combat tuberculosis (TB) more than a century ago, the American Lung Association today is urging Congress to act decisively to finally eliminate TB in America.

The Comprehensive TB Elimination Act, S. 1551/HR 1532, now pending in the Congress, would propel the U.S. Public Health Service’s efforts and lead international work to eradicate the infection globally. It is imperative that our nation prepare for a potential outbreak because extensively drug-resistant (XDR-TB), which is difficult to treat, has been identified in the U.S.  

The Comprehensive TB Elimination Act will provide the US Public Health Service with the resources needed to eliminate TB in the US and play a leading role in eradicating the disease globally.

TAKE ACTION: Encourage the Congress and the President to Pass the Comprehensive TB Elimination Act
