All-Party Parliamentary Group (APPG) on Global Tuberculosis

Learn more



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.
