Stop TB Partnership launches online consultation to update the Global Plan to End TB 2016-2020; Deadline for submission: 19 July 2019
5 July 2019 I Geneva, Switzerland – The Stop TB Partnership is launching today the first online consultation to update the Global Plan to End TB 2016-2020 - The Paradigm Shift to align with the UN Political Declaration on TB targets and commitments and the next three-year replenishment cycle of the Global Fund, to cover also 2021 and 2022.
The Stop TB Partnership Board requested in January 2019 the development of an updated Global Plan under the guidance of the Global Plan Task Force. The consultation is open to the public, and we encourage participants to share information, ideas, and experiences related to the Global Plan. The consultation will run from 5 to 19 July 2019. It will take only a few minutes to complete.
The revision of the Global Plan seeks to be as inclusive as possible, and this online consultation aims to reflect a diverse range of inputs in the Global Plan update, including governments, technical experts, researchers, the private sector, civil society and people affected by the diseases. Participants are encouraged to answer a set of top line questions and provide comments which will subsequently be reviewed and considered by the Global Plan Task Force.
The advanced draft of the updated Global Plan will be subject to a second online consultation in autumn, 2019.
Since its creation, the Stop TB Partnership has issued five-year Global Plans to provide a road map for concerted global advocacy activities and to provide an estimate for the resources needed to achieve the global targets to end TB.
The current Global Plan provides a “business case” for the investment needed to set the world on the track to reach the end of TB by 2030. The updated Global Plan will be launched at the end of the year in Jakarta, Indonesia, during the Stop TB Partnership’s 32nd Board Meeting.
