1. POSITION(S) VACANT: Manager- Grants, International Union Against Tuberculosis and Lung Disease (The Union), New Delhi

 

2. ORGANIZATION BACKGROUND:

 

The International Union Against Tuberculosis and Lung Disease (The Union) is an international membership, technical and scientific organisation, headquartered in Paris, France. Established in 1920, The Union is led by people who are committed to a healthier world for all, free of tuberculosis and lung disease.

 

The Union has been working to improve health for people in low and middle-income countries, by conducting scientific research, and working with governments and other agencies, to translate research into better health for people around the world, and delivering projects directly in the field, driving change to ensure the best quality care.

 

About the Project:

 

Tuberculosis (TB) is one of the major public health challenges for India. Each year, it is estimated that over 26 lakh new TB cases emerge in India, with an estimated 4.45 lakh people succumbing to the disease annually. Recognizing the public health threat posed by the disease, the Honourable Prime Minister, called for the prioritization of the disease and committed to eliminating TB by 2025, five years ahead of the Sustainable Development Goal target of 2030. In line with the Honourable Prime Minister’s vision, the Central TB Division, Ministry of Health and Family Welfare, launched a National Strategic Plan for TB Elimination (2017-25), marking a paradigm shift in the prioritization of TB, shifting the focus of the program to a more patient-centric approach toward TB elimination.

 

In early 2021, the Honourable Union Minister for Health and Family Welfare, launched the TB Mukt Bharat Abhiyan – a people’s movement for a TB-free India – at central and state levels, to garner the participation and ownership of all stakeholders to achieve a TB-Free India by 2025. To this end, a National Technical Support Unit (NTSU) on Advocacy, Communications

and Social Mobilization is being set up in collaboration with development partners to support the Government of India’s efforts, both nationally and in states. The NTSU will help strengthen on-ground program delivery by employing various advocacy and communications approaches to generate demand and create awareness on the services available under the TB program. The goal is to deploy creative and disruptive advocacy and communications strategies, and build large-scale public awareness and enable community mobilization towards a collective campaign, which is seamlessly linked to the program and service delivery on the ground.
