The Stop TB Partnership Announcement - 01 October 2019

The Stop TB Partnership will soon be on its way to Hyderabad, India, for the 50th World Conference on Lung Health. We’ll be addressing global tuberculosis (TB) issues and national TB responses by meeting with civil society, National TB Program managers, lawyers, the private sector and other TB stakeholders. At a variety of events we’ll be discussing the strengthening of current TB approaches, the development of TB innovation and how we can work together to reach the commitments of the Political Declaration set at the UN High-Level Meeting on TB. We’ll also be making sure to celebrate global TB CHAMPIONS who have made outstanding progress in the fight against TB.

You’ll see us everywhere you look and we’ll send a full calendar soon, but for now here are some exciting events to look out for (in chronological order):

Integrating Human Centered Design in TB Care (with IDEO)
invite only

 29 Oct, T-Hub, IIIT Campus
 9.00 - 12.30


The Human Centered Design (HCD) Workshop, which will be co-hosted with and facilitated by, will socialise TB survivors, national TB programme managers, innovators, and other key partners and stakeholders to HCD methods and mindsets, a creative approach that prioritises designing solutions that aim to have as much impact as possible by focusing on the experiences of the most affected people. The event’s objectives are to:
(1) invite participants to bring their expertise into a generative, immersive environment that feels more like an innovation incubator than a workshop, with a focus on the value of prototyping
(2) identify opportunities for HCD demonstration projects with participants’ organisations.

Caring for people with TB in private sector
The Paradigm Shift- Lessons from India 

01 Nov, Hotel Lemon Tree Premier, HITEC City
13.30 - 17.00

In recent years India has undergone a paradigm shift in engagement with private sector care providers. This has significantly increased case notifications in India. In 2019 alone, from January to September, private sector care providers have notified half a million people with TB. This event, organized by JEET Partners and co-hosted by The Stop TB Partnership and The Global Fund will be an excellent opportunity for other countries and partners to learn about the India model of private sector TB care directly from people who made it possible.

Shifting the Gender Paradigm in the TB Response
Conference Program

02 Nov, Conference, MR .01 & .02 (190)
10.30 - 12.00
TB produces different challenges for men and women. While men are more impacted by disease epidemiology, women may be more impacted by TB stigma. This session will explore the need for TB programs to address not only TB epidemiology, but also harmful gender norms present in communities where interventions occur.
