Huffington Post: TB: Out From the Shadows

“…The Global Stop TB Partnership brings together more than a thousand organizations to fight the disease. It is one of the most effective global partnerships today, a successful example of bringing public and private, national and international, together. … But there is a potential partner in this global effort whose work is rarely acknowledged and whose potential is barely recognized: the vast network of faith communities. TB is a prime case of where these communities can and should be key partners. … There are inspiring examples of work on TB by faith communities and by faith-inspired development organizations … But neglecting the real potential for faith engagement in the effort is a mistake…” (3/27).
