Stop TB Partnership Working Group on New Drugs launches Innovate TB contest

30 March 2012 - The Working Group on New Drugs invites people around the world to submit videos, photos or written accounts of new approaches that can help to achieve zero deaths from TB in this generation.

Innovate TB will help to promote innovations that are revolutionizing TB prevention, treatment and advocacy. Submissions are encouraged from any person or organization who wants zero deaths from tuberculosis. All entries will be posted on the InnovateTB webpage. At the close of submissions, the public will be invited to vote for their favorites. The top vote-getters will be reviewed by an expert panel of representatives from InnovateTB stakeholder groups. The winning entry will be judged on the overall message, relevance to the theme, and creativity by an expert panel comprised of InnovateTB stakeholders.

The winner will be featured heavily in WGND publications and InTB’s channels, including web and social media. This will include featured blog posts, interviews, and recognition in an InTB video. We will also publicize the winner through our partner network.

The deadline for entries is midnight Eastern Time on Saturday, May 26, 2012.
