Community Engagement

Global TB CAB



Take That TB

Treatment Action Group (TAG) works to promote the participation of affected communities in tuberculosis (TB) research and to ensure that research reflects community needs as well as scientific priorities. TAG worked with partners at Take That TB  to develop an online platform for TB patients and survivors from around the world to share experiences and strategize on advocacy. In addition to TAG’s work with TB patients and survivors, TAG coordinates two groups of research literate community activists—the Global TB Community Advisory Board, and the Community Research Advisory Group to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s Tuberculosis Trials Consortium. Both groups act in an advisory capacity to institutions conducting TB clinical trials. To further promote community engagement in TB research, TAG helped to draft the Good Participatory Practice Guidelines for TB Drug Trials (GPP-TB). Together with FHI360 and several TB drug trial sites, TAG will develop and pilot tools for monitoring and evaluating the impact of GPP-TB implementation.
