Advocacy, Communication and Social Mobilization (ACSM) refers to a set of evidence-based, targeted activities that can create positive behaviour change, influence decision-makers and empower communities. The ACSM web site offers practical tools for planners and implementers and best practices on how ACSM strategies have been effective in addressing various TB control challenges, including stigma and discrimination as well as case detection and treatment adherence.
A national stop TB partnership is a voluntary alliance between organizations drawn from the public, civil society and private sectors who commit to work collaboratively towards TB prevention, care and control, in which all partners contribute from their core competencies, share risks and responsibilities and benefit by achieving their own, each others and the overall goal.
TBTEAM (the TB TEchnical Assistance Mechanism) builds upon the previously established Interagency Coordinating Committees, Stop TB Partnerships or otherwise named TB partner coordination bodies as well as all technical bodies of the Stop TB Partnership (e.g. Green Light Committee, Global Laboratory Initiative, Global Drug Facility, the TBCAP mechanism).
This page provides technical information on the the 22 high burden countries as published in the most recent Global TB Control Report by WHO.
