Join us at our Advocacy Day in Westminster on Wednesday 22nd March. We’ll be meeting parliamentarians to explain why 2017 is a crucial time for developing new drugs to combat drug-resistant TB.
The drugs we use to treat TB are five decades old and over time, resistant forms of TB have emerged. Put simply, the drugs don’t always work. Join us in pushing the UK Government to ensure the development of a safe, short and successful treatment course for TB that will help put an end to this deadly epidemic.
Find out more about our new campaign, The Drugs Don’t Work.
On World TB Day (24th March), why not share your concern for action on drug-resistant TB using #TheDrugsDontWork
Build you advocacy skills!
RESULTS Advocacy Days are great ways to develop your advocacy skills and gain experience in meeting politicians face-to-face to explain to them about the issues you care about. People can be cynical about the political process, but MPs are there to represent you, and are often keen to take positive actions and be seen to make a difference. We believe it is very important to make them aware of serious global health issues that aren’t in the public eye, such as TB.
Join us at at the RESULTS office in Vauxhall at 12.30 pm, where you’ll be fully briefed by expert advocacy staff. We’ll then head over to Portcullis House for meetings with parliamentarians between 2 and 4 pm.
