Tuberculosis is the scourge of mankind. Through history, 1 Billion people have died of TB. (1% of all people ever born)
TB and HIV cause 2,400,000 deaths and cost $132 Billion per year ($11 Billion per month, $366 Million per day, every day)
In 1797, Edward Jenner discovered the first vaccine for smallpox. Millions of lives were saved. Sadly; his son Edward died of TB in 1810; his sister Mary died the same year; his sister Anne 2 years later. His wife, Catherine, died of TB in 1815.
The mission of GOAL 2050 is to End the Transmission of Tuberculosis and HIV by 2050 with: (1) low-cost mRNA vaccines at large-scale with Advance Purchase Agreements, (2) low-cost lateral flow tests, (3) affordable treatments, (4) mobile Electronic Health Record (EHR) data recording with HIPAA/GDPR compliance, and (5) local vaccine confidence & education campaigns. Over 30 years, ending transmission of TB and HIV could save 72,000,000 lives and $3.9 Trillion healthcare dollars.
TEST. TRACE. TREAT. VACCINATE. EDUCATE… END TRANSMISSION.
