Contribution

Please tell us how your organization will contribute to the Global Plan to Stop TB by briefly describing its involvement in any of the areas of work listed below:

TB Care Delivery:
In the context of wide-ranging partnerships for TB control, advocacy, communication and social mobilization (ACSM) embrace: advocacy to influence policy changes and sustain political and financial commitment; two-way communication between the care providers and people with TB as well as communities to improve knowledge of TB control policies, programmes and services; and social mobilization to engage society, especially the poor, and all allies and partners in the campaign to Stop TB. Each of these activities can help build greater commitment to fighting TB. Advocacy is intended to secure the support of key constituencies in relevant local, national and international policy discussions and is expected to prompt greater accountability from governmental and international actors. Communication is concerned with informing, and enhancing knowledge among, the general public and people with TB and empowering them to express their needs and take action. Equally, encouraging providers to be more receptive to the expressed wants and views of people with TB and community members will make TB services more responsive to community needs. Social mobilization is the process of bringing together all feasible and practical intersectoral allies to raise people's knowledge of and demand for good-quality TB care and health care in general, assist in the delivery of resources and services and strengthen community participation for sustainability. Thus, ACSM is essential for achieving a world free of TB and is relevant to all aspects of the Stop TB Strategy. ACSM efforts in TB control should be linked with overarching efforts to promote public health and social development.

Drug-Resistant TB:
Awareness is vital in reducing the health and economic burden of TB. Many people aren’t sure about the symptoms, or think it’s a disease of the past, meaning critical warning signs can go unnoticed, cases go undetected - and treatment is received too late. It has launched a campaign to provide greater knowledge of the disease, which is on the rise in Zimbabwe.

TB-HIV:
Human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) and tuberculosis (TB) are the leading independent global causes of death among patients with infectious diseases. Additionally, due to the shared immune defense mechanisms, they are the leading cause of co-morbidities globally.
