REACH and STOP TB Partnership, in collaboration with USAID, organized a Regional Capacity-Building Workshop for TB Survivors in New Delhi from April 10-13, 2017. Tuberculosis (TB) survivors and advocates from India, Indonesia, Vietnam, Cambodia, Bangladesh and the Philippines took part in the workshop designed to empower and capacitate the TB community. The four-day workshop brought together 32 people from six countries who shared personal experiences on TB, documented the societal and systemic barriers they faced, transformed the barriers they faced into concrete advocacy goals and strategies and discussed the power of collective community-driven advocacy to change the status quo in TB.
