TB Vaccine Advocacy Fellowships

The TB Vax ARM and the WGNV, in collaboration with IAVI, have hosted two fellowships in 2022 and 2023, bringing together cohorts representing affected community members, advocates, and early career researchers from high TB burden countries. The fellowships feature a lineup of workshops led by advocacy experts from around the world to help the fellows hone their skills to develop and contribute to future advocacy campaigns.

2023 Fellowship

TB Vax ARM Quotes_Feb 22 Action (1)

Seven advocates participated in an online skill-sharing and co-creation program in early 2023. The fellows developed an open letter campaign demanding world leaders invest in TB vaccine R&D to make ending TB possible! Signed by almost 1,200 individuals and organizations from over 90 countries, the letter played an important role in amplifying the collective call for new TB vaccines at the United Nations High-Level Meeting on TB in September 2023.

2022 Fellowship

Kudo Board

Cheleka Mpande, Gloriah Moses, and Krystyna Rivera joined an intensive two-week social media skill building and campaign development program in February 2022 in the lead up to the 6th Global Forum on TB Vaccines. The fellows developed a social media-based campaign where they called upon members of the global TB community to #Unite4TBVax by sharing how they are helping to make new TB vaccines a reality on the campaign Kudoboard.

Open Letter Campaigns

Since the TB Vax ARM was convened in May 2021, the coalition has launched two open letter campaigns, calling world leaders to fulfil funding commitments to make new TB vaccines a reality. Both campaigns received support from the global TB community, including TB survivors from all G20 states and over 90 organizations, and have reached over 1 million screens on social media.
