WE DON’T WANT A SINGLE PERSON TO GET SICK WITH TUBERCULOSIS. WE AIM TO ACHIEVE THAT BY COMBINING STORIES AND SCIENCE.

Two of our TB Proof members, Zolelwa Sifumba and Phumeza Tisile, shared the stage with Bill Gates, Bono, Peter Sands, President Macron of France and affected community representatives to advocate for increased funding at the Global Fund 6th Replenishment in Lyon in 2019 to fight TB, HIV and Malaria.

Being part of TB Proof saved my life. When I joined I was struggling through the harsh treatment alone, without support but being welcomed in to TB Proof I had a family of TB survivors.
A family who helped save my life and also taught me how to use my own voice to advocate for change. An advocate and activist was also born and with my voice I now fight against the occupational illnesses faced by health care workers, including TB. With our voices I believe we can end TB, along with other illnesses”.
