More than 80 regional and national civil society organisations and community-led organisations working on TB, Universal Health Coverage (UHC), and Pandemic Prevention, Preparedness, and Response (PPPR) in 19 countries have gathered in Jakarta, Indonesia from 28-30 March 2023 to prepare for the upcoming High-Level Meetings (HLMs) on TB, UHC, and PPPR. Co-convened by APCASO, Stop TB Partnership, and the French Ministry of Foreign Affairs and hosted by the Embassy of the Government of France in Indonesia and the Institute Française Indonesia (IFI) with funding support from the L’Initiative and Expertise France, Stop TB Partnership Challenge Facility for Civil Society (CFCS), and People’s Vaccine Alliance Asia (PVA Asia) and in partnership with Activists’ Coalition on TB – Asia-Pacific (ACT! AP), Jaringan Indonesia Positif (JIP), Yayasan Spiritia, and Civil Society Engagement Mechanism for UHC2030 (CSEM), this three-day convening aimed to (a) share of key information on the 3 HLMs, (b) identify civil society and community priorities, and (c) facilitate a dialogue among key government representatives, multilateral organisations, and civil society.
After three days of high-level and focused thematic panels among key stakeholders and a workshop to identify gaps based on ground-level experience and country’s progress on the state of TB, UHC, and from COVID-19 experience in preparation for future pandemics, civil society and community-led organisations has identified top 5 priorities that countries have to commit in the upcoming HLMs on TB, UHC, and PPPR. Titled, “Resilient, Sustainable, Integrated, and Fully Resourced Systems for Health”, it is envisaged that this statement will serve as the regional civil society and community position as well as an advocacy tool in the upcoming consultations and negotiations related to the 3 HLMs.
