The unique collaboration between civil society representatives and parliamentarians has been bearing fruit for many years in the realm of fight against TB.
Members of legislative
bodies often receive crucial information about systemic challenges in TB from representatives of civil society
and communities, enabling them to direct their political will to solve these issues.
At the core of building such collaboration is the longstanding and reliable partnership between TBEC and the Global TB Caucus, a unique network of parliamentarians from around the world dedicated to fight against TB.
Deeply valuing our partnership and recognizing the potential of involving parliamentarians in the fight against TB, in December 2023, a Memorandum of Understanding was signed between our organizations. This memorandum serves as a catalyst for strengthening collaborative efforts. In particular, coordination meetings are planned for the coming year on a regular basis, along with joint activities in countries and more intense work on advocacy materials for parliamentarians.
