Global TB Caucus

GlobalTB_Opening_042.jpgAcross the end of November and the beginning of December I attended the 2nd Global TB Caucus in Cape Town.  Nearly 50 political representatives from 30 countries came together at the biggest political event on TB for nearly 100 years.  Over a three day programme, we heard presentations from civil society, from world-leading experts, and saw first-hand how South Africa is tackling its own TB epidemic. The Summit included a Conference on the afternoon of Monday 30 November.  Delegates set priorities for the Caucus' activities in the year to come and agreed to found a formal Secretariat. 

As part of the trip I visited the Ubuntu Primary Health Care Clinic in Khayelitsha to take part in a series of activities. It was heartbreaking to see the effect that TB is still having, TB is the world’s biggest infectious killer because it has been neglected for decades.
