TB Advocacy Guide for People Who Use Drugs

Guest writer Empty. Written on . Posted in .

This handbook has been designed to be a practical tool for activists to support them to assess their local circumstances, identify priorities for advocacy and to design, deliver and review their own TB advocacy campaigns. Each setting and context will throw up different issues and challenges for TB advocacy.

TB is a growing threat to people who use drugs, particularly when set against the backdrop of high vulnerability to, and prevalence of, HIV. As such it is important for drug user advocates from drug user organisations and PLHIV groups to help develop a coordinated advocacy response.
