Latent TB is the name for the stage where TB bacteria have entered the body and become established, but are lying dormant not causing any symptoms. If they become active and start
growing, then Latent TB turns into active TB disease.
Testing options for LTBI
If required, your doctor can perform two simple tests for LTBI - either a skin test or a blood test.
End TB strategy and LTBI
The End TB strategy is a WHO initiative. Reducing TB deaths by 95% and new cases by 90% between 2015 and 2035 are 2 of its key priorities.

SANOFI A LONG-TERM CONTRIBUTOR IN FIGHTING TUBERCULOSIS
Since the 1950s, with the discovery of rifamycins, still today the cornerstone of tuberculosis (TB) treatment, Sanofi has had a sustained contribution to
the fight against tuberculosis. We are committed to help reach the objective to end TB epidemic by 2030*.
The United Nations High Level Meeting in New York in September 2018 and the Global Fund Replenishment in October 2019
create the momentum to accelerate progress towards ending TB.
We at Sanofi believe that efficiently eliminating TB cannot be achieved without an integrated strategy, including the treatment of latent TB (LTBI) in high risk
populations. People living with HIV & TB contacts are among those most at risk.
Together with our partners, we are stepping up the fight against TB by launching a Global Commitment:
Global LTBI awareness campaign
New resources and tools to improve education
Bold partnerships and support for TB prevention and care
New therapeutic approaches and adapted formulations for all populations
