From 27-29 October 2013, nearly 20 individuals with extensive experience on TB advocacy, from 13 countries, met in Paris, in the margins of the Lung Union conference to focus on gender equality and the Global Fund. Nine African countries were represented, as well as participants from Bolivia, India, Kyrgyzstan and Lithuania. The majority of the participants were TB advocates working at the community level. Nearly all advocates had been personally affected by TB and several are openly living with HIV. Participants were joined by representatives from the Global Fund secretariat, the Stop TB Partnership and the GIZ (German) Back-Up initiative. The overarching aim was to strengthen women’s engagement with the Global Fund. The meeting was the second in a series of Women4GF workshops.
