Description

Call for proposals for strategic civil society and affected communities coordination and advocacy

Following the success of the community engagement and participation approach for the 2018 UNHLM on TB, it was agreed a similar approach will be crucial to the success of the 2023 UNHLM on TB. Engagement, coordination and advocacy work by TB communities and civil society should be supported through a relevant organization with expertise in networking, community coordination, civil society advocacy, and UN High-Level Meeting processes. The chosen group would need to refrain from advocacy on the HLM that is independent of the group and its inputs, thus ensuring neutrality. Stop TB Partnership is seeking to select an organization or a consortium that will mobilize, engage, coordinate and communicate with communities and people affected by TB, support the advocacy agenda and messages of affected communities, and ensure a united civil society and community voice leading up to, during, and following the 2023 UNHLM on TB. In undertaking coordination, the organization’s objective would be to ensure their own neutrality by supporting affected communities and civil society to target decision makers and governments.
