Webinar: Community involvement and engagement in early stage TB research


ERA4TB (European Regimen Accelerator for Tuberculosis) is partnering with fellow IMI-funded TB research consortium, UNITE4TB, on its upcoming webinar on 23 March 2023 from 4-5 pm CET.

The webinar will be the second in ERA4TB’s newly launched webinar series exploring key topics related to TB and antimicrobial research. The webinar will look at the important topic of community involvement and engagement in early-stage TB research. It will include hearing directly from a TB survivor about their hopes for future research and a panel discussion with a fantastic set of speakers exploring why it is important to involve people affected by TB in research, what the challenges can be to doing this and how we can look to overcome them.

The panellists will be:

  • Patrick Agbassi, Global Health specialist, Chair of the Global Tuberculosis Community Advisory Board and UNITE4TB Community Advisory Group
  • Blessi Kumar, CEO of The Global Coalition of TB Advocates (GCTA) and a member of the UNITE4TB Community Advisory Group
  • Santiago Ramon Garcia, Associate Research Professor at the Research & Development Agency of Aragon Foundation (ARAID), ERA4TB work package lead, University of Zaragoza

The webinar is being hosted by ERA4TB partner, the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE). Register for the webinar here.
