New information hub for national Stop TB partnerships launched

25 January 2012 - Geneva - The Stop TB Partnership has launched a new web-based platform, National Stop TB Partnerships in Action.

"The web pages highlight the role that national partnerships play in catalyzing the skills, services and resources needed to bring TB care to all who need it, especially people in the most vulnerable groups," said Dr Lucica Ditiu, Executive Secretary of the Stop TB Partnership. "They consolidate the most up-to-date information about national partnerships and their plans and activities."

The pages are aimed both at partners already engaged in national partnership and partners who are looking for more information on what other partners are doing in their country.

"The work of national partnerships is critical to putting into action the Stop TB Strategy and realizing the targets of the Global Plan to Stop TB 2011-2015," said Dr Ditiu. "We sincerely hope that this web platform will foster that work."
