ACTION REQUIRED: An important message from Thokozile Phiri Nkhoma and Timur Abdullaev – TB Affected Communities Constituency!

The UN High-Level Meeting (UNHLM) on Universal Health Coverage (UHC) is taking place on 23 September in New York.

The UNHLM on UHC preliminary agenda has NO COMMUNITY or AFFECTED POPULATIONS speakers on the agenda. Given the commitments by UN and government leaders to Leave No One Behind, this is unacceptable. This is a huge step back from previous HLMs where people living with HIV and TB survivors featured on the official agenda in the opening, closing and panel sessions.

We urge you to send a message via letter or email to the President of the UN General Assembly. See template here

You can also reach out to any contacts you have with your UN Missions in New York. As your community representatives on the Stop TB Coordination Board, we are committed to provide any support – Please write to pthokozile@gmail.com with any updates or responses.
