  • Ensure that key and vulnerable populations, including people with disabilities gain fair and equitable access to quality TB prevention, diagnosis, and treatment services at the community level and to create opportunities for community-based, multi-sectoral, and participative mechanisms aimed at strengthening the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of TB including post-treatment care services

This policy Brief would have not been possible without the support of Stop TB Partnership under Challenge Facility for Civil Society (CFCS) 10. The Team of TB People Philippines would also like to thank TB People Global for their unending support, to our partner United Architects of the Philippines (UAP) – Architects for Accessibility (AFA), and to our other civil society partner association for the inputs and guidance.
