Moscow to Host 15th BRICS TB Research Network

The 15th meeting of the BRICS TB Research Network will be held in Moscow from 23 to 25 April as part of Russia’s Chairship of BRICS in 2024.

The BRICS TB Research Network was first organized in 2017 in accordance with the BRICS TB Cooperation Plan approved at the 6th BRICS Health Ministers’ Meeting in New Delhi, India, in 2016 and confirmed by the 2017 BRICS leaders Declaration at the BRICS Summit in Xiamen, China.

The BRICS TB Research Network promotes and conducts a wide range of collaborative research, from basic to operational, aimed at furthering innovation in TB diagnostics, vaccines, drugs, and treatments.

Meeting discussions will revolve around current research into TB prevention, diagnosis, treatment, including multidrug-resistant TB, and other areas of cooperation requiring more intensive research. The ultimate goal of the Network is to achieve the SDGs and eliminate TB.

The meeting will continue BRICS’ many years of successful cooperation in the fight against TB and enable the BRICS TB Research Network to bring representatives and experts from the countries that joined on 1 January 2024 up to speed.
