That this House is concerned at the continuing rise in the prevalence of tuberculosis (TB), both globally and in the UK; notes that TB is the cause of nearly 5,000 deaths per day and thatit is the leading cause of death of HIV-infected people in the developing world; recognises that the epidemic of TB drug resistance is being further inflamed by poor care management and drug use and that research into desperately needed new diagnostic tools, drugs and vaccines is severely under-resourced; and calls on the Government to mark World Tuberculosis Day on 24 March 2011 by committing the UK to seek maximum multi- and bilateral aid effectiveness in efforts to combat this preventable and curable disease.
