Rise up now 4 TB (Run4TB) is our call action to our leaders on the commitments made at the UNHLM in 2018. Cognizant of the COVID 19 pandemic that is currently plaguing the world, the need for governments to scale up their TB response has never been higher. This World TB Day we call to partners and allies to participate in this campaign outlined below as we call for scaling up efforts to find missing patients, increased TB financing for RnD, treatment and care, adopt and implement necessary policies that will enable equitable and timely access to TB diagnosis treatment and care.
This year our world TB Day campaign was hosted by different partners in 11 countries with various activities done to engage TB stakeholders within the community nationally and globally. This involved partnerships with GFAN organizations to submit an advocacy letter to their minister of health through their National TB Caucus and also to the AU Commision and head of health division. Below are some of the highlights from our Run4TB World TB Day campaign
