The Stop TB Partnership aims to accelerate social and political action to
fight Tuberculosis. It helps to forge consensus on strategies, coordinate
responses, promote the supply of high-quality anti-TB drugs and generate
action for the development of new diagnostics, drugs and vaccines. It is
actively expanding access to life-saving treatment for TB patients in the
world's poorest countries.
American Air & Water®, Inc, a South Carolina Corporation, offers a complete
line of UV air disinfection systems which greatly reduce or eliminate
microbiological contamination of indoor air. The UV systems have been used
for years in hospitals and doctor's offices to effectively control the
spread of airborne TB. As a company dedicated to delivering solutions for
reducing human exposure to environmental pollutants as well as controlling
the spread of harmful microorganisms, including TB, inside most any indoor
environment, American Air & Water's goals are well aligned with the global
Stop TB Partnership's goals.
Dr. Marcos Espinal, Executive Secretary of Stop TB Partnership Secretariat
wrote: "Becoming a partner allows you to post the full profile of your
organization for the public and for partners to view and use. You will also
be kept up to date on TB related news and events. The Partners Directory is
an ever improving resource and as a partner, these resources will always be
made available to you."
Warren Lynn, President of American Air & Water®, Inc. said “We are happy
that the Secretariat recognized the value - in terms of knowledge and
resources - we can offer to Stop TB Partnership and approved our
application. As an Organizational Partner we are planning to join the
efforts of the Partnership toward the mutual goal of providing a healthier
