2015 is the final year of the Consolidated Action Plan to Prevent and Combat Multidrug (MDR)and Extensively Drug-Resistant (XDR)Tuberculosis in the WHO European Region, 2011-2015. In addition, the post-2015 Global TB Strategy was endorsed by the 67th World Health Assembly in May 2014.

The advisory committee will meet at WHO/Europe in Copenhagen on 3 October 2014.
