NGOs make a vital contribution to disease control
that is increasingly recognized by governments and international
development partners. This booklet provides examples of the important
contributions NGOs are making to TB control in the region and provides
guidelines for NGOs wishing to get involved in the fight against
This is not only a record of success, but also
a call for action a plea for more and more agencies to collaborate
and develop partnerships with national TB programmes. And the plea
goes out to all organizations not only those with a historical
interest in TB. All organizations including those working
in community development, advocacy, human rights, education
have a role. TB affects us all in one way or another directly
through its impact on the lives of friends and colleagues who have
TB, and indirectly through the impoverishment of families and communities.
All of us can be, and should be, involved.
