Activating A Human Rights-Based Tuberculosis Response |

Publisher:  GCTA

“The concept of a human rights-based response to tuberculosis (TB) is relatively new. The century-old, medicalized approach to TB did not consider the rights of the individual in planning the response. . . . With this Brief, we hope that policymakers, national TB program implementers, and communities affected by TB can come together to plan and implement interventions that uphold the dignity and human rights of all people affected by TB.”
