APPG Activity Stopped

Parliament dissolved, APPG activity paused for General Election


From Thursday 30th May 2024 the APPG will be dissolved for the General Election campaign.


The APPG on Global TB  formally ceases to have status on 30th May 2024 and will not therefore be active until it is reconstituted in a new Parliament


Strict parliamentary rules prohibit APPGs from making public comment, holding events, undertaking research, issuing communications, or allowing others to do so in their name during a General Election. They are also prohibited from any sort of campaigning.


The APPG is therefore not able to reply to public correspondence or media inquiries during this time.


Until it is reconstituted, the APPG’s website will not be updated. Existing content, and the group’s membership list, should be considered historic.


We hope to be able to reconstitute the APPG on Global TB in the next Parliament.

The All Party Parliamentary Group on Global TB’s mission is to accelerate progress towards ending the TB epidemic.  We work primarily through the UK parliament to push the UK government to improve its policies on TB and devote more resources to tackling the epidemic. 


APPGs are informal cross-party groups that have no official status within Parliament. They are run by and for Members of the Commons and Lords, though many choose to involve individuals and organisations from outside of the Parliament in their administration and activities.
