Tribute to Dilshat Khaitov

It is with immense grief we mourn the loss of our Community Delegation member Dilshat Khaitov who was a strong leader and dear friend to us all in the fight to End TB.  He gave strength to the affected community on the ground in Kyrgyzstan, in the region and beyond. He was also board member of TBpeople global network as well as founder and head of TBpeople Kyrgyzstan.

We will feel his immense loss, and we will forever be grateful to him for helping us make so many leaps and bounds in the fight to end TB. We will never forget his commitment and contribution. 

RIP Dilshat… Yes, we will End TB, brother. Thank you for all that you have done in fighting TB with us.

The report is guided by principles of human rights and social justice and emphasizes the importance of raising political will, scaling up domestic and external financing, and community empowerment.

The Community Delegation to the Stop TB Partnership Board stand in solidarity with the TB affected communities and TB survivors in Ukraine.

The world must not stand and look for the gains in TB in Ukraine to be reversed but must act now to prevent more TB deaths, if not, then all our effort for a world free of TB become ruined. To our friends and TB community in Ukraine, we stand with you. We support the statement from the three Civil Society Delegations to the Global Fund Board.
