TB and HIV: Together we can beat them both



Our National Conversations on HIV on July 10 will focus on HIV and TB. TB can be a devastated disease on its own, but is especially so when a person is co-infected with HIV.

Explore with us the human side of the struggle against TB and HIV which affects the vulnerable most. Join the conversation as we share and discuss ideas about the important difference churches can make in the areas of advocacy, care and support. Learn about a faith-based global letter writing campaign leading to the UN High Level Meeting on TB this September, demanding governments make the needed investments and policy directives to end the TB epidemic.

The conversation will be moderated by Rev. Mike Schuenemeyer, Executive Director of the UCC HIV & AIDS Network, with Special Guests:

  • David Bryden, Stop TB Advocacy Office, Washington, DC
  • Francesca Merico, HIV Campaign Coordinator, World Council of Churches-Ecumenical Advocacy Alliance. Geneva, Switzerland

The conversation will take place online via the Zoom meeting platform. Register now to join us at 2:00 PM ET.
