Webinar: I survived tuberculosis


We are happy to launch our webinar series featuring inspiring speakers and highlights from the key campaigns we work on. These webinars are open to everyone interested in learning more about our work and how to become a skilled advocate.

To kick us off with the first webinar, we are excited to invite you to join us for a discussion with Ingrid Schoeman a tuberculosis (TB) survivor (see bio below). During this session, we will explore what TB is, the importance of fighting this infectious disease and hear a TB survivor’s powerful experience first-hand. This talk is also perfectly timed ahead of World TB Day (March 24) that is commemorated globally and the upcoming High-Level Meeting on TB at the United Nations on September 26 2018.

You don’t want to miss this great opportunity!
