The Global TB Caucus is a unique global network of parliamentarians engaged in the fight to end tuberculosis (TB). Caucus members act as interlocutors between civil society organisations (CSOs), international donors, private sector organisations and governments at global and regional levels.
The Global TB Caucus’ main goal for our work with civil society is to help national organisations develop their advocacy capabilities in order to engage with Members of Parliament (MPs).
Civil Society and The Global TB Caucus
the impact of partnership in the TB response
In 2020, the Global TB Caucus Secretariat analysed
our work with Civil Society Organisations (CSOs) between 2014 and 2020 via interviews with MPs and CSOs, surveys and analysing our historical data.
This was to ascertain the nature and frequency of interactions between CSOs and MPs before the Caucus was established, since the Caucus was established and since the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, to assess the role that CSOs play in supporting Parliamentarians to take action to end TB.
The results show that a substantial majority of the Focal Points have met more MPs since the establishment of the Global TB Caucus, and have, on average, engaged more with parliamentary processes.
