Last July 29, around 45 civil society and TB-affected community participants attended the Asia-Pacific TB and Human Rights Advocacy Strategy Consultation.

Building on the progresses to advance rights-based approaches to TB in Asia-Pacific while at the same time learning from these experiences from the 3 countries and based on the outcomes of the regional Training of Trainers (TOT), APCASO in partnership with ACT! AP and Stop TB Partnership organized a regional community and civil society consultation that aims to develop a regional community-led advocacy strategy on TB and human rights. This includes identification of key priority objectives and interventions that will accelerate the achievement of a human rights-based TB response in the region, with clear strategies and activities. This TB and human rights advocacy strategy will frame the community priorities on TB and human rights for Asia-Pacific, and will be presented to NTPs, funders, and other stakeholders for further dialogue and identifying ways forward at the Regional Dialogue on TB and Human Rights, which will take place a month after this community consultation.
