Statement

As I have said on a number of occasions, the ultimate goal of development assistance must be to work towards the day when it is no longer necessary, and we should measure our work by how far every one of our investments moves us closer to that day. At the heart of our work is the core belief that each country must lead its own development journey. USAID is realigning its policies, strategies, programs, and investments to support our partner countries on what we call their "Journey to Self-Reliance."

Remarks

We're here, of course, because while many gains have been achieved in the fight against tuberculosis, I think we all know that we have much, much to do. It remains the world's number-one infectious disease killer, continuing to claim nearly two million lives each and every year. TB also disproportionately affects the most vulnerable people in our society: those who live in poverty and marginalized communities. Too many individuals with TB also face stigma and discrimination which discourages them from treatment, which means that our approach must be truly multisectoral.
