In those 11 years, she has achieved many things, including being a mother of two. Another triumph has been staying HIV-negative in a country where one in three sex workers is HIV-positive. To manage this impressive feat, HIV prevention has been a constant in her life.

• Tuberculosis is now the leading cause of death from infectious disease, with 1.3 million deaths per year, not including HIV co-infections.

• Globally, the rate of decline in TB incidence has been slow, at 2 percent per year from 2000 to 2016, mainly due to low case notification. An estimated 4.1 million people with TB have been missed every year and contribute to ongoing transmission. To achieve the milestones set in the End TB Strategy, we must accelerate the rate of reduction to 4-5 percent each year by 2020.
