Who we are
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 53 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.
