TB is a treatable and preventable disease, however, it remains one of the most deadly infectious diseases in the world. We cannot defeat TB without the support of civil society. TBEC exists to coordinate responses from civil society in the WHO Europe Region.

If you would like to take action on TB, please see some of our recent activities below for ways to get involved.

Influence & Learn - TB Europe Coalition


TBEC aims not only to promote overall understanding of the affected communities and civil society’s role in TB response, but also identify the overarching thematic priorities TBEC should focus on its advocacy efforts and activities. According to TBEC Strategy 2017-2021, TBEC has identified three overarching thematic priorities for the region – domestic financing, people-centred TB policies and TB R&D and equity in access to existing TB tools.
