Author_ASOn 10th of May, the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe adopted Resolution on Drug-resistant tuberculosis in Europe. This resolution will go to all 47 Ministers of Foreign Affairs of the Council of Europe countries this summer (before the UN HLM on TB). You can read resolution in detail here.

Global TB Caucus members met with a member of the Ukrainian PACE delegation on a visit to Kiev in 2016, after which the motion was tabled in the PACE on TB and AMR. The rapporteur, who then set up the Ukrainian TB Caucus, is a Ukrainian MP called Serhiy Kiral, and since then the Global TB Caucus has been working very closely with him in the reports development, with specific focus on fact-finding missions and supporting the drafting.

This is great advocacy and engagement success by the Global TB Caucus and TBEC members in Ukraine!
