Participation in the Interactive Civil Society Hearing
The interactive civil society hearing is part of the preparatory process for the UN HLM. It will provide a platform for the inclusive, active and substantive engagement of affected communities and civil society and other relevant stakeholders. Participants will have the opportunity to take part in a day of interactive panel discussions, share practical experiences from their work, and make recommendations towards the UN HLM in order to support and to inform Member States in the development of the UN HLM outcome document. The President of the General Assembly will prepare a summary of the hearing.
The TB UNHLM modalities resolution (access the modalities resolution here), states that the hearing aims for the active participation of “appropriate senior-level representatives of Member States, observers of the General Assembly, parliamentarians, representatives of local government, relevant United Nations entities, non-governmental organizations in consultative status with the Economic and Social Council, invited civil society organizations, academia, medical associations and the private sector, as well as people affected by tuberculosis and broader communities”.
The World Health Organization (WHO) and the Stop TB Partnership are supporting the President of the General Assembly in the organization of the hearing.
