Speakers of the program:
From 2016 to 2020, five countries in Eastern Europe and Central Asia (EECA) region: #Georgia, #Kazakhstan, #Tajikistan, #Kyrgyzstan and #Ukraine - have conducted CRG assessments, using Stop TB Partnership individual or integrated CRG tools. Some of the countries had more than one assessment that contributes to better understanding of barriers faced by particular key populations, and human rights, legal, stigma and/or gender aspects in tuberculosis (TB) response.
To identify common CRG barriers and solutions, TB-REP 2.0 produced a regional overview 'Breaking the Silence: Human Rights, Gender, Stigma and Discrimination barriers to TB services in EECA Region’ that summarizes the situation per country, followed by in-depth analyses of common CRG bottlenecks and recommendations.
The virtual meeting on December 17 will launch the regional CRG overview, take stock of specific countries learning and discuss tangible ways forward adapted to specific context for the EECA region.
The working languages will be English and Russian. Simultaneous interpretation will be provided.
