The Global TB Caucus is a unique international network of political representatives with support in more than 150 countries. Today, the Global TB Caucus gathers more than 2500 members and helped launching 56 National TB Caucuses over the world.
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.
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.
In 2015, the Executive Committee met and approved our Strategic Plan for the years 2017-2020
