How RPCV Advocacy will help bring an end to TB (GAP March Webinar)
March 23, 2023
Our March Global Allies Program webinar was a special event focused on tuberculosis, a debilitating disease of poverty often overlooked, underfunded, and underresourced. We heard from RPCVs with lived experience of the disease, USAID partnerships and projects to address it, and how RPCVs can finally make an impact to end this disease for good!
Special thanks to speakers Kristi M. Mathis, We Are TB (RPCV Malawi ‘12-’14), Virginia Nagy, Senior TB Program Manager, Infectious Diseases Division, USAID (RPCV Togo ‘96 – ‘98), and Ben Callaway, RESULTS and Global Allies Program volunteer advocate (RPCV Armenia ‘07-’09).
