The delegation of Iraq, represented by Ambassador Dr. Abdulrahman Al-Husseini, head of the Department of International Organizations and Conferences, participated in the High-level conference on the fight against Tuberculosis (TB).

The Conference called for an international partnership to confront this serious disease, which kills 600 children every day, and stressed that low-income countries are unable to cope with the disease alone because of their limited resources and the unavailability of advanced medical services and medicines to help eliminate the disease. They called on the international community to shoulder its responsibility to cooperate, provide financial resources and political will to eradicate the disease.
