IAS 2019 – Social Media Toolkit

#IAS2019 Social Media Toolkit

Below, you will find social media content to be used to raise awareness of the need to prevent TB in order to end TB, especially among people living with HIV.

The content also includes information about a recent study showing that a short regimen for preventing TB (3HP) has been found safe when co-administered with a new first-line HIV Drug. The results pave the way for scale-up of TB preventive therapy across the 12 IMPAACT4TB countries, across three continents.

This content can be used across Twitter and Facebook ahead of and during the upcoming IAS Conference in HIV Science taking place in Mexico City from July 21-24 2019.

Use this social media toolkit to get involved in the conversation!

  • 1.7 billion people (almost a quarter of the world) are infected with the bacteria that causes TB, and people living with HIV are at high risk of progressing from infection to TB disease. Yet it doesn’t have to be this way. It’s time to take action to shield people from this deadly disease. Find out more www.impaact4tb.org #IAS2019
  • In an important moment for TB control, a new study recently found that a shorter regimen to prevent TB can be safely co-administered with dolutegravir—the first-line drug to treat HIV in many high-burden TB countries. This news paves the way for scale-up of this new regimen in 12 high-burden TB countries across three continents. Find out more: http://bit.ly/2LCrJGo
