Project "Pathways for infection and prevention of tuberculosis and other infectious diseases" in Azerbaijan

From 01.02.2022 to 01.05.2022 in Baku (Azerbaijan) the country partner of global network TB PEOPLE, NGO "Veremsiz Heleja Dogri" (Towards a Tuberculosis Free Future) is implementing the project "Routes of infection and prevention of tuberculosis and other infectious diseases" financed by the State Support Agency for Non-governmental organizations. 


In the course of the project, educational activities were conducted among TB patients under treatment at TB dispensaries. Visits were made to families of TB patients receiving outpatient TB treatment at home. 


During the event, we discussed ways of transmission of infectious diseases and their prevention with patients, provided them with valuable advice on infection control, distributed educational materials published as part of the project to patients, and sent thematic posters to the hospital. An animation and educational video was shown and patients' appeals on social security were heard. 


The organization is preparing a package of recommendations to the governing body of TABIB (Association for Management of Medical Territorial Units). We express our gratitude to the Agency of State Support to Non-Governmental Organizations of the Republic of Azerbaijan.

TBpeople global and TBpeopleUkraine are both to receive a grant for this year's CFCS.

TBpeople Global is among 31 organizations worldwide to receive a Challenge Facility (CFCS) for 2020.

Fantastic news! The Stop TB Partnership has announced the successful grantees for the Challenge Facility for Civil Society (CFCS) 2020! TBpeople Global, as well as our country chapter in Ukraine, TBpeopleUkraine, are among the 31 organizations from 13 countries and six regions who will receive grants ranging from USD 20,000 to USD 100,000.

 

CFCS grants will support community and civil society actors at national, regional and global levels to implement key actions to achieve the targets and commitments made in the UN High-Level Meeting Declaration on TB. In recent years many countries identified community, rights, and gender (CRG) barriers faced by TB affected communities. CFCS grants will cover a range of activities to address these barriers.


Congratulations to all grantees!

 

TBpeople are very happy to be given the Stop TB Partnership's Empowering Community Voices Award for 2019 in Hyderabad, India.

TBpeople are the proud recipient of the Stop TB Partnership's Empowering Community Voices 2019 Award.

The 50th World Conference on Lung Health was full of events and highlights, but one thing stands out for TBpeople: our very first award!

 

At the Human Rights Awards Dinner, TBpeople received the Stop TB Partnership's Empowering Community Voices 2019 Award for "dedication to TB survivors and people affected by TB through community mobilization and human rights activism".

 

It was so exciting to see how many of our members and friends rushed to the stage when the award was announced! But no matter how much we appreciate that our efforts were recognized, we are aware of the tremendous amount of work that needs to be done to strengthen the community of people affected by TB and turn it into a truly global movement, and to make sure that rights of people affected by TB become a reality.
