Treatment Action Group (TAG) welcomes the introduction of the Comprehensive TB Elimination Act, especially its support for a robust approach to TB prevention, and for critical research at the NIH and CDC.
The Treatment Action Group, a nonprofit organization that advocates for an end to HIV/AIDS, said in a news release that the administration has not only proposed drastic cuts to HIV research, prevention and treatment programs in the past, but also has undermined the Affordable Care Act and Medicaid, both of which need to be expanded to help eradicate the infection.
From the late '80s, along with my colleagues in ACT UP (Aids Coalition to Unleash Power, an international direct action advocacy group) and the Treatment Action Group, I fought for investments in Aids research and drug development and changes in the way both were done.
and global health policy director of the Washington-based Treatment Action Group. "But this is consistent with CDC's lack of an effective strategy toward ending the epidemic among black gay men."
In fact, as per a 2014 Report by Treatment Action Group, pharmaceutical companies are shedding their TB portfolios and continue to disband TB research programmes for development of new drugs and vaccines.
Most recently, Coco served as the Senior Policy Associate of Treatment Action Group where she worked toward improvements in domestic and developing countries overall health systems to fight HIV and TB.
Mark Harrington, executive director of the Treatment Action Group, which spun off from ACT UP in the 1990s, says AIDS activists have long tried to distance themselves from such anti-Washington efforts.
CDC, NTCA, state and local TB programs, the Treatment Action Group, and the TB Drug Shortage Working Group of the Advisory Council for the Elimination of TB are collaborating to identify short-term and long-term solutions to address the INH shortage.
The activists' impulse--which would be almost entrepreneurial, if not for the atmosphere of fear and decimation--threw a cluster of men and women together in the mid-1980s, resulting in the formation of ACT UP (AIDS Coalition to Unleash Power) and its splinter/rival faction, TAG (Treatment Action Group).
According to the associations Treatment Action Group and Roll Back Malaria, 1.45 billion should be spent on TB research and 647 million Euros on malaria.
Over a decade ago, Treatment Action Group's Mark Harrington offered a famously lucid description of why he fell into the latter camp at the 1994 International AIDS Conference in Yokohama: "Using AZT when your immune system is still holding HIV in check, and your lymph nodes are still trapping virus, may be like using your last light bulb at noon: it may be burnt out by dusk, and you'll be left in the dark." This view was underpinned by data from several large studies of early intervention with AZT monotherapy, which failed to reproduce the clinical benefit reported in individuals with advanced disease.
"The TB Alliance's hard work in the past five years has paved the way for a set of major steps forward in TB treatment," said Mark Harrington, Executive Director of the Treatment Action Group. "The challenge ahead is to expedite the clinical trials of the most promising drugs in people with TB and with HIV/TB, so we can realize the promise of faster curative treatment that is safe and effective with anti-HIV drugs."
