World Health Organization, March 2017
The cluster focusing on HIV/AIDS, tuberculosis, malaria and neglected tropical diseases (HTM) at the World Health Organization (WHO) is one of six clusters at WHO’s headquarters in Geneva, Switzerland. Its overall objective is to reduce the global burden of endemic infectious diseases and, thus, save lives and improve people’s health. The HTM cluster helps countries to mount comprehensive and cost-effective public health responses to the complex challenges posed by infectious diseases. Responding to its mandate, the HTM cluster will be leading WHO’s efforts to support the achievement of and monitor progress against some components (HIV, TB, malaria, viral hepatitis and NTDs) of SDG target 3.3.
