Live stream of the 1st Eastern Partnership Ministerial TB Conference

The 1st Eastern Partnership Ministerial Conference on Tuberculosis and Multidrug Resistant Tuberculosis will be available to stream live on 30–31 March 2015 from the TB Europe Coalition website.

The multi-stakeholder high-level conference is hosted under the Latvian presidency of the Council of the European Union, in cooperation with WHO Europe, The Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria, the Stop Tuberculosis Partnership, the TB Europe Coalition and the European Commission.

The event will be attended by representatives of the European Union (EU), the European Economic Area (EEA), the European Commission, EU accession and Eastern Partnership (EaP) countries, international institutions and nongovernmental organizations.

The key objectives of the meeting are to:

  • Contribute to reducing the burden of tuberculosis (TB) and Multidrug Resistant tuberculosis (MDR-TB) and to ultimately eliminate TB and MDR-TB in EU/European Economic Area and EaP countries through sustainable health systems and greater high-level political commitment and advocacy
  • Boost multisectoral and cross-regional approaches in TB prevention and care, with a focus on vulnerable communities and transboundary transmission, while respecting human rights
