Two unprecedented political opportunities are rapidly approaching– the Global Ministerial Conference and the UN High-Level Meeting on TB. Civil society and community groups have a critical role to play in raising the profile and understanding of the issues we face in TB among government officials and ensuring that the commitments they make at high-level meetings are translated into urgent investments and actions.
To facilitate engagement between civil society and community groups and national policy makers, Treatment Action Group (TAG) has created tools and resources to help support grassroots effort.
To help implement these tools, TAG and the Global Coalition of TB Activists (GCTA) hosted a webinar on how civil society and community groups can use these materials and other methods to initiate a dialogue with their national governments in advance of the Ministerial Conference in Moscow and maintain communication and accountability in the lead up to the UN High-Level Meeting on TB and beyond.
The tools and the recording of the webinar can be accessed here.
