Advocacy, communication and social mobilisation in tuberculosis(TB)

Advocacy
 Activities designed to place TB high on the political and developmental agenda, foster political will, and increase financial and other resources on a sustainable basis
Communication
 Increase knowledge among the general public about TB and TB control services, improve interpersonal communication between patients and programme providers contributing to behavioural change
Social mobilisation
 The mobilisation of communities and civil society for action to fight stigma and eliminate TB as a public health threat
  • The framework works in a 360° loop, beginning with Advocacy before moving through to Communication, Social mobilisation and back to Advocacy.
