Since 2014, The U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) has provided treatment to more than 13 million people, including more than 300,000 who were suffering from MDR-TB. Our partners have achieved nearly a 50 percent reduction in TB-related deaths across priority countries, and saved more than 54 million lives in the process. As the largest bilateral donor for TB, since 2000, USAID has funded programming in 23 countries, and aided more than 30 additional countries through grants from the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, TB, and Malaria (to which the United States contributes one-third of the overall financing).
