Global Fund and Stop TB Partnership Sign Memorandum of Understanding with Global Drug Facility

The Stop TB Partnership’s Global Drug Facility (GDF) is the largest supplier of quality assured patient treatments, including first line drugs (FLD), second line drugs (SLD) and paediatric formulations, as well as diagnostics.
