WEBINAR: Good COPs or Bad COPs 2.0: Advocacy to Ensure the Prioritization of TB in 2019 PEPFAR Country Operational Plans

Good COPs or Bad COPs 2.0: Advocacy to Ensure the Prioritization of TB in 2019 PEPFAR Country Operational Plans (COPs)

Every year, PEPFAR meets to discuss their strategy and budget for the following year, and set targets on implementing country operation plans (COPs) to improve the response to HIV/AIDS. The expected release of the PEPFAR Country Operational Plans (COPs) provides a critical opportunity for advocates to ensure that the latest developments in TB treatment, prevention and diagnostics are implemented within PEPFAR countries. This webinar, held on Wednesday, January 23, provided key information regarding the PEPFAR COPs process and timelines, and how to strategize and engage in PEPFAR COPs planning to address and strengthen our global response to TB through PEPFAR, and introduce tools to galvanize advocacy efforts.
