TB Europe Coalition is launching a call for applications for a three-day TBEC capacity building workshop on TB advocacy and service delivery that will take place in London, from the 16th to the 18th September 2019.

The three-day workshop will focus on:

  • TB research and advocacy in the UK (from engagement with government officials and members of the UK parliament to working closely with academic networks and international organisations);
  • Organisational capacity building of TBEC members (from best practice in awareness raising and health promotion among affected communities to practical experience in grassroots engagement to fundraising strategies to successful campaigning);
  • TB service delivery (including visiting the Find&Treat van and Olallo House in London);

TBEC will cover all travel, accommodation and per diems for THREE participants.

As this workshop aims to use the acquired information in your day-to-day work, all the participants will be asked to develop and implement a small project/activity set in their home country, following the training. Thus, in your application form, you will be asked to provide an outline for such a project. The form of the activity can vary from the development of organisations advocacy or grassroots engagement strategy to creation of local advocates group to the launch of a new awareness-raising campaign. You can decide what would be the most useful activity for you, your organisation and TB engagement in your country.

Please note that there will be no funding available for the follow-up activities in your home countries.

To apply, you have to:

  • Be TB activist or member of a non-governmental organisation, currently working on TB advocacy or service delivery;
  • Be a citizen of the EU Member States, Iceland and Norway, or countries which have a bilateral agreement with the EU – currently Serbia, Moldova and Bosnia-Herzegovina;
  • Speak good English;
  • Fill and send us the application form;

The deadline for this has closed.
