As noted in the TB Europe Coalition, the guide will help to better understand the following issues:
overview of the TB situation in EECA
challenges and opportunities for CSO engagement to support the TB elimination
strengthening the role of civil society in the transition to people-centred model of care.
10 actions within four main blocks of priorities for TB communities and community leaders in the region.
This document builds upon the materials developed with the technical assistance provided by TBEC within the TB-REP 2.0 project. This work supported intensification of the national dialogue and has produced number of materials to reflect outcomes of the process. This document summarizes the outcomes of the national dialogues from the prisms of regional and global approaches to advance the people-centred model of TB care. It identifies challenges faced by countries to switch to the people-centred model of care and challenges and opportunities for CSOs and community groups to be active engagement in this process.
Most of the countries in the region have explored key challenges they face and opportunities there for CSO engagement to support the TB elimination agenda.
Note that as a part of the project “Advancing People-centred Quality TB Care – From the New Model of Care Towards Improving DR-TB Timely Detection and Treatment Outcomes in Patients”, TB Europe Coalition (TBEC) has supported civil society organizations (CSO) in 11 countries – Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Georgia, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, the Republic of Moldova, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan, Ukraine, and Uzbekistan, through providing assessments/coaching visits for capacity building and has supported national dialogues between CSO groups, public authorities and other stakeholders, including National TB Programs (NTB) to highlight the role of CSO and support their active engagement in all stages of TB response efforts at the national level.
