For many years progress against TB has been hampered by a chronic lack of political will and attention to tackle the world’s deadliest infectious killer. While this has been the case in the past, the upcoming two years provides a unique opportunity to turn the tide.
There are key opportunities to TB in the upcoming two years. The Global Ministerial Conference on TB in Moscow in November 2017, the Argentinian G20 (building off the success of TB inclusion in July), and the UN High Level Meeting on TB in 2018. Coordination of civil society and communities will be crucial in achieving ambitious and successful outcomes.
In order to shape the TB Europe Coalition’s position and ensure it is truly representative of the TB community, and in particular, the WHO Europe Region, the TB Europe Coalition has developed a survey.
You can find the link to the survey here: https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/
The consultation will conclude on 9 August 2017. The TB Europe Coalition will collate all responses and formulate a WHO Europe regional wide position.
