Stop TB Partnership

The National Stop TB Partnership in the United Kingdom

UK Coalition to Stop TB: A small group of UK organisations working on TB met to coordinate media efforts. The idea was that these organisations could collaborate more closely together rather that approaching the same people from different sides. However, an outcome of the meeting was that there was a need for organisations in the UK to collaborate closer on a number of areas, and so a strategy day was held in September 2008 and more organisations invited. The coalition official formed in December 2008, with the first meeting March 2009. The coalition has a number of working groups including: media, TB in UK, Resource Mobilisation, Research and New Tools, resources for the coalition, TB/HIV. The Coalition has been formed to increase the level of awareness, commitment and political will to stop TB through a unified voice and coordinated actions. The Coalition aims to add weight to existing efforts and provide greater influence and impact through harnessing the skills, capacity and energy of all its members.
