WWTB - Meeting about Global Eradication of TB

About us

Our mission is the global eradication of Tuberculosis through the identification of safe and effective treatment regimens of very short durations.

The work of WORLD WITHOUT TB (WWTB) is based on the skills and dedication of a number of diverse participants who believe in what the charities activity could deliver. In addition to our trustees, we work with a range of volunteers, fundraisers, and clinicians.

Our Trustees are:

 

Peter Smith FCA– Trustee Secretary & Treasurer

"I met Amina many years ago in France. Previously, I had been working in East Africa for a number of years as a Chartered Accountant. In 1978 I joined the Secretariat of His Highness the Aga Khan in France as Finance Director for not-for-profit health, education and housing programmes.   For the next 28 years I sat on Boards of these programmes situated in East Africa, South Asia and Syria. While I retired from full-time employment in 2006, I remain on a voluntary basis a Director of several of these programmes."

 

Rafiq Rattansi – Trustee

Amina Jindani MD, FRCP – Scientific Advisor

"I have been conducting clinical TB trials since the 1960s when I coordinated the first East African/British Medical Research Council trial of short-course chemotherapy in Africa.

I attended University of London and became a member of the Royal College of Physicians of the United Kingdom. My post-doctoral thesis was based on the early bactericidal activity of tuberculosis drugs on the rate of reduction of the bacterial load in the sputum. This method is now applied in the evaluation of new drugs for tuberculosis. In June 2003, I was elected as a Fellow of the Royal College of Physicians of London.

Currently, I am an Honorary Senior Lecturer at St. George’s, University of London where I coordinate the International Consortium for Trials of Chemotherapeutic Agents in Tuberculosis, known as INTERTB."

Chris Wakley - Trustee

"After running the London Marathon supporting WWTB in 2015, I began to read about TB. Its global impact is significant and I am keen to provide support by a continued involvement in the charity.

I am a chartered accountant and enjoy swimming, cycling and running. If you wish to provide support to the charity by way of sponsorship or by representing WWTB at your own event please let us know."

 

Vishali Jivan – Trustee

"We are currently unable stop to the momentum of TB related deaths world-wide.  TB is very much a curable disease and I am eager to lend my support to Dr Jindani and her  team to continue their research in reducing TB treatment duration and support anti TB programmes."
