Civil Society Engagement

Civil Society Engagement on TB Prevention and the Needs of Children with TB

 Civil society has been – and continues to be – actively involved in every phase of the Tuberculosis and HIV response, across the continuum of care, from advocacy to service delivery, from policy to program design, implementation to monitoring and evaluation.

Given the tremendous diversity within civil society, meaningful engagement with civil society takes many forms. Countries, regions, and mandates of civil society groups widely vary.  

Under IMPAACT4TB, the Treatment Action Group(TAG) is the lead partner in supporting global and national advocacy by civil society and community-based organizations to scale-up TPT and pediatric-TB interventions. TAG works with selected civil society organisations to undertake and support advocacy for TPT and pediatric TB at the global, regional, and national levels to bring together civil society partners from project countries to undertake targeted advocacy at national level aimed at introducing and scaling up 3HP, including for people living with HIV and children under the age of 5 years old.

These partners across our 12 countries work collectively with TAG and support other Consortium members:

  • To map out and plan national level interventions to undertake policy and community advocacy to support the introduction of 3HP, specifically, and TPT generally. For children, partners will support the introduction of the 3HR regimen.
  • Design and plan virtual and face-to-face civil society consultation processes for the IMPAACT4TB Project to engage with national-level processes.
  • Provide oversight of and facilitate the engagement of civil society with national structures, donors and development partners.
  • Undertake actions to increase the visibility of new TB preventive treatments, including for children.
