Jump to how you can take action now

In just over one month, tuberculosis (TB) stakeholders will convene in New York City for the second ever United Nations High-Level Meeting (UN HLM) on TB to re-commit to ending the world’s deadliest infectious disease. Having high-level leadership in attendance is essential to ensuring that this important meeting is as impactful as possible and to getting the world back on track towards TB elimination.  

That’s why we’re calling on Canada to renew its commitments to ending TB by announcing new investments in TB research and development at the UN HLM. With increased funding to support scientific innovation, we can help improve the tools available to prevent, diagnose, and treat TB – and #YesWeCanEndTB! 

We need your help to ensure Canada shows up with strong commitments! 

take action now!

Call the Prime Minister to request his participation at the United Nations High-Level Meeting on TB, happening September 22, 2023.  

  • Call the Prime Minister's Hill Office at: 613-992-4211 
  • If you get the answering machine, leave a message! Try calling again later – but leaving a voice message is an impactful action in and of itself.  
  • The Prime Minister and his staff care about you and your thoughts on this issue. Do your best to emphasize why this issue is important to you and your personal reasons for supporting it.  
  • Make sure you leave your contact information (phone and email) with the Prime Minister’s staff, and ensure you get their contact information as well to follow-up.  
  • If his staff asks you a question you’re unsure about – don't worry! You don’t need to be an expert on this issue. You can simply follow-up with them at a later date or let them know that you’re uncertain about the answer.

The ask: To end TB and to prepare for future threats, Canada must ensure the highest-level political participation at the United Nations High-Level Meeting on TB this September and commit 0.15% of its overall research and development expenditure annually to developing and delivering new tools to prevent, diagnose, and treat this deadly infectious disease.
