Since its creation in 2009, TBEC members have reported significant challenges in contributing to an effective TB response at both the national and regional levels. There is a clear ask from TBEC members to increase the depth of their knowledge and skills to be able to effectively influence policies and spending. Therefore the 2017-2021 TBEC strategy aims to support its members capacity and capabilities in order for them to successfully advocate for robust TB national and regional policies.

TBEC actively informs, trains and engages civil society organisations and individuals working on TB at national level. It does this via regular country visits, online webinars and publications on relevant TB issues, ad hoc financial assistance to members to attend international and regional conferences, meetings and workshops, as well as various individual and organisation-based mentoring activities.
