The Global TB Caucus aims to accelerate progress against the global TB epidemic through targeted actions at the global, regional and national level.
Over 2300 Members of Parliament from 150 countries work individually and collectively to raise the political profile of the disease and enable cross-cutting policies to transform the response to TB at national, regional and global levels.
As parliamentarians, our members play a crucial role in holding governments into account and ensuring that commitments are delivered so the TB epidemic can be eliminated.
At the global level we work in partnership across countries to target groups such as the G20 with coordinated messaging and calls for action.
In 2017 and 2018, our global work focused on the G20, on building political momentum ahead of the Global Ministerial Conference in Moscow, and on ensuring that the United Nations High-Level Meeting on TB is a success.
The Global TB Caucus has four regional networks (Africa, Americas, Asia Pacific, Europe) and a linguistic network (Francophone).
These networks bring together parliamentarians from across their regions to learn, share ideas, and agree on joint and individual actions that will enhance the response to TB in their nations and regions.

At the national level, our focus is on building groups of parliamentarians to form a National TB Caucus. These national groups are the backbone of our advocacy.
They are supported by local stakeholders and therefore are sustainable - requiring no financial input, and limited technical and logistical support, from outside entities.
Over time, we are confident that the National TB Caucuses that we have helped build will lead the global fight against TB.
