TBnet webinar 26 October 2023

Welcome to the TBnet webinar "Mobilising the voice of academics and healthcare workers: the UN High-Level Meeting on TB and beyond" on 26 October at 16:00 (CEST) in Zoom.

This webinar will discuss the importance and power of mobilising the voice of academic and healthcare workers to lobby governments and policy makers in the work to end TB.

First Janika Hauser, an advocacy specialist and Director at Campaigns in Global Health who has been co-leading efforts to support academic and healthcare worker engagement in the 2023 UN High-Level Meeting on TB will set out the why and how of advocacy.

We will then hear from Jessica Potter, co-chair of UK Academics and Professionals to End TB, about how the network engaged the UK government and worked alongside other advocates during the development of the recent UN political declaration on TB.

We will then open to floor to discuss what is being done in other countries to mobilise the voice of academics and professionals and what comes next moving beyond the recent UN High Level Meeting on TB.

Join us in Zoom!
