Our Impact

When the Global TB Caucus was launched in 2014 there were 5 national parliamentary groups working on TB: Brazil, Canada, Japan, United Kingdom, and the United States.  To date, the Caucus has grown rapidly and currently has: 

Representation in 150 countries

Expanded to over 2,500 members

Representation in 44 countries on the WHO's list of high TB burden countries

Representation in 18 G20 countries

Now supports 53 national caucuses worldwide

Connected 88 CSOs with MPs in their countries

In 2019

We have seen increased domestic resources mobilised for TB over the past year in 24 of the 48 TB high-burden (HB) countries listed by WHO. Of these 24 countries, 19 (80%) have members from the Caucus and 11 (46%) have National Caucuses. 

 

Seven HB countries are on track to achieve the TB SDGs for 2030: Kenya, Lesotho, Myanmar, Russia, South Africa, Tanzania and Zimbabwe. The Caucus has members in 6 of these countries, and in our biannual analysis of MPs activities, we note that these MPs have consistently taken meaningful and impactful political actions.

 

Twenty-six countries increased their pledges to the Global Fund compared to the previous cycle, representing USD 12.1 billion. The Global TB Caucus has members in 22 of the 26 countries (84%), and MPs in these countries have consistently taken impactful political actions. 22 countries pledged for the first time, adding USD 226.82 million to the total pledge.
