The National Stop TB Partnership in Brazil
Parceria Brasileira Contra a Tuberculose (Stop TB Partnership in Brazil) was formed in November 2004 by civil society institutions (BEMFAM – Bem Estar Familiar do Brasil, Associação Damien do Brasil, Fórum Estadual de ONG´s na Luta contra a Tuberculose no Estado do Rio de Janeiro, Sociedade Beneficente São Camilo – Pastoral da Saúde) and the Ministry of Health's TB Programme. Its mission, consistent with the human rights principles and recommendations of the Sistema Unico de Saude in Brazil, is to work towards elimination of TB as a public health problem while keeping in mind the economic, social and political aspects. Parceria Brasileira Contra a Tuberculose works in private-public partnerships and public-public partnerships in order to create innovative solutions for TB care and control in Brazil.
