She will leave Nigeria today with her husband for the 73rd Session of the UN General Assembly.

Her address will touch on issues of increased political commitment, funding and robust partnerships in combatting the disease.

The event will be preceded on the 25th September by a Gala Dinner organized to celebrate Global TB Champions, Celebrities and TB Survivors, where she will also make some remarks.
