Stop TB Partnership welcomes four new companies to Ending Workplace TB


08 June 2021, Geneva, Switzerland - The Stop TB Partnership welcomes today four new corporate partners to the Ending Workplace TB (EWTB) initiative, a private sector network of companies acting to strengthen tuberculosis (TB) care and prevention in their workplaces and supply chains.

The four companies: Kribi, Menara Holdings, Sanofi, and Total Cameroun join the dozen companies who announced their support on World TB Day 2021, along with the three founding companies: Johnson and Johnson, Fullerton Health, and Royal Philips. More companies are expected to join the initative in the coming months.

EWTB's primary focus is on supporting companies to improve their own workplace health offeringsservices ensuring their workers are protected, as much as possible, from the spread of TB in the workplace. Due to the strong overlap between COVID-19 and TB, many of the interventions that EWTB proposes not only benefit TB, but also COVID-19 and other respiratory infections and in some cases, support worker’s overall health - for example, through enhanced social protection.

EWTB is supported by the Stop TB Partnership and the STBP Private Sector Constituency, the Global Fund to Fight HIV/AIDS, TB and Malaria, the World Economic Forum, and Johnson & Johnson.
