ICW Call to Action on addressing TB for women living with HIV

Dear colleagues and partners,

Please find available on the International Community of Women Living with HIV (ICW) website here our call to action for addressing TB in women living with HIV.

The Statement titled AT THE INTERSECTION: Women Living with HIV and Tuberculosis highlights the status of TB and offers recommendations for addressing Tuberculosis in women and girls living with HIV.

TB disproportionately impacts the poorest and most marginalized women and their families in the world. Yet, just like HIV TB remains a highly stigmatized disease and women in particular face high burden of its impact particularly women and girls living with HIV.

Kindly share the call to action widely with your partners and networks.

Thank you.
ICW women
