DFID supports tuberculosis (TB) control through bilateral and multilateral channels. The Global Fund to fight AIDS, TB and Malaria is the principal mechanism the UK uses to finance our contribution to combat TB. We have pledged up to £1.2 billion for 2017-2019 to the Global Fund.
Our purely bilateral spending on TB control for 2016, which we publish by calendar year, was £2.6m. Data beyond 2016 has not yet been published.
These figures do not capture all our spending on TB control, which benefits from our sizeable investment in global health research, cross health sector global and country programmes and our large investment in many health UN agencies.
