WWTB's mission is the global eradication of tuberculosis through the identification of safe and effective treatment regimens of very short durations. This will be achieved through: conducting clinical trials with currently used drugs: capacity strengthening; equipment supply; training of staff in participating centres; workshops; and the encouragement of networking.

Claire has decided to take on the challenge of the London Marathon to raise funds for WWTB to support this important work.  Find out a bit more about Claire and why she is running:  

“On the first day of my new job on a pivotal, international tuberculosis trial I was offered the chance to run the marathon for World Without TB. Despite being at my lowest level of physical fitness for quite some time (due to travelling for a year), it was an opportunity that I could not pass up; I work with a truly inspiration lady who has dedicated the past 50 years of her life to clinical research aimed at eradicating TB and am honoured to be running for this small charity. It’ll be my second shot at the London Marathon and I’m hoping to take at least 30 minutes off my previous time of 5 hours, training is now in full swing and I’m looking forward to making it to the finish line“
