Building an advocacy group: Activism for Zero TB

Dear Partners,

SORAK has embarked on mobilizing for a group of activists including: clinicians, investigative journalists, implementers, NGO/CBO and policy makers to focus our struggle against tuberculosis (TB) on achieving zero TB deaths, zero new TB infections, and zero suffering from TB.

Members are committed to zero TB deaths, zero new TB infections, and zero TB suffering and stigma, because:

  1. TB is preventable and curable.
  2. The main driver of today’s unnecessary TB deaths, new TB infections, and suffering and stigma is lack of political will.
  3. Every country in the world has the potential to reach the goal of zero TB deaths, zero new TB infections, and zero TB suffering and stigma.

We feel that it is Political will and commitment by Governments and communities that are the driving forces that enables communities and countries with high burdens of TB to reduce deaths, infections, and suffering. With your support, SORAK is confronting the social determinants of this disease that affects mostly the poor and marginalized.

There is however a need for increased resources critical to achieving community engagement on all fronts in order to achieve zero TB deaths, zero new TB infections, and zero suffering from TB
