Developing a Rights-based Approach to TB
December 5-6, 2014 Center in Delhi, India
TB and Human Rights
The global TB crisis remains at epidemic proportions. In 2012, there were approximately 8.6 million new cases of TB and 1.3 million deaths from TB—nearly 3,600 deaths a day. An estimated 26% of all global incidences of TB occurred in India alone. The central truth about the TB crisis in India is that social and economic factors and structural barriers drive the epidemic. A rights-based approach to TB will focus on the underlying social and economic determinants and establish the rights of people living with and vulnerable to TB. The approach will articulate the legal obligations of governments and non-state actors, such as private health providers and drug manufacturers, to ensure good quality TB testing and treatment are available and accessible. And it will focus on the state’s obligation to effectively regulate the health sector and ensure adequate, equitable and sustainable funding for TB prevention and treatment.
In an effort to generate and promote thought, dialogue and policy actions surrounding a rights-based approach to TB, the organizers will hold a conference 5-6 December, 2014, in New Delhi, India, at the University of Chicago Center in Delhi. The conference will be co-hosted by the All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS). The organizers hope to include stakeholders and partners from India and around the world. Participants will range across a number of disciplines and professions, including medical professionals, lawyers, academics, community members, policy makers, and others. The goal is to promote cross-disciplinary thought, dialogue and action on developing and implementing a rights-based approach to TB. The conference will consist of panel discussions and workshops on various subjects related to human rights and TB. Limited funding will be available for conference participants based on need.
