Countries, partners and civil society commit to strengthening public-private care provider engagement during the COVID-19 pandemic to enable access to affordable TB care at PPM Working Group Meeting

Over 300 representatives from countries, partners and civil society came together virtually at the Global Working Group Meeting on Public-Private Mix (PPM) on TB prevention and care on 23 and 25 November 2020. The Meeting was convened by the World Health Organization and the Stop TB Partnership with support from the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) and the Global Fund.

The meeting placed a spotlight on the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the TB response, which has been especially severe on private sector care delivery. The meeting resulted in a set of comprehensive priority actions to bolster PPM efforts in the face of the COVID-19 pandemic.
