Mission Statement

TB MAC aims to increase the effectiveness and efficiency of TB control policy and practice at global and country level.

We will do this by :

- building stronger and more effective links between decision makers, modellers and economists
- creating new high quality modelling resources, and making them available and accessible to decision makers
- enabling better informed decision making communities and modellers, and ensuring TB decision makers are better equipped to integrate these modelling resources in their decision making.
