Who We Are

The Global TB Caucus is a unique international network of political representatives with support in more than 130 countries.


Led by its members for its members, with the support of a dedicated Secretariat, the members of the Caucus work collectively and individually to end the TB epidemic.


Members of the Caucus adhere to the principles outlined in the founding document, the Barcelona Declaration.  


In particular, members commit:

To working across geographical and political divides in a non-partisan and inclusive fashion;

To engaging with civil society and all other stakeholders involved in the fight against the TB epidemic; and

To confront stigma and social isolation associated with the disease.

TB is a curable disease and the time to end it is now

Our History


The Global TB Caucus was launched in 2014, by  The Rt Hon Nick Herbert CBE MP, after many years of successful campaigning to the UK government, through the All Parliaments Parliamentary Group on TB in the British Parliament.  Mr Jose Luis Castro, Executive Director of The Union,  offered to host and fund a meeting at the World Lung Health Conference.


The Global TB Caucus project took another step forward when Dr Aaron Motsoaledi, Minister of Health for South Africa and Chairman of the Stop TB Partnership declared his support.  Other political representatives from around the world agreed to attend the Summit or sent messages of support for the meeting in Barcelona.
