Despite being preventable and curable, tuberculosis continues to destroy lives and communities around the world.
At RESULTS we campaign for TB to dealt with as a matter of urgency; to ensure the UK and the EU are spending what is needed to bring the disease under control and to ensure the policies for tackling the disease are equitable and effective.
Our grassroots campaigners have a long history of championing funding mechanisms like the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, TB and malaria, as well as making the case for more money to research and development into effective tools to diagnose and treat TB. The Global Fund provides over 80% of all international financing for TB control in high burden countries across Africa and Asia.
At the EU level, we are currently working to influence the negotiation process on the EU’s budget for the next seven years and have taken some high impact action on the issue. We are seeking to ensure that increased funding is made available for research into poverty related and neglected diseases and that health is prioritised within the EU aid budget.
As well as our grassroots campaigning, we also provide the secretariat to the All Party Parliamentary Group on Global TB. Through this group we work to help engage and inform parliamentarians on the scale and nature of the global epidemic, and to build alliances and share knowledge and research with other parliamentarians around the world.
To the right you will see some of our recent actions on TB and the Global Fund.
