Organization Description:
Friends for International Tuberculosis Relief is a registered non-profit society in Germany. Our work is based on the vision of a world free of tuberculosis (TB).
The mission of our society is to promote the progress in the field of TB eradication and assist in inhibiting the spread of TB, especially of the resistant forms. In particular, we aim to support non-profit organizations in Germany as well as those operating overseas in developing countries in TB care and elimination. On the one hand we aspire to improve the lives of the neediest populations in developing countries. On the other hand we want to ensure through our dedicated advocacy work that the general population in Germany and other developed countries are made fully aware of the risk of drug-resistant forms of TB and thus collectively strive towards ending this threat. Ultimately we also want to make your life easier and facilitate the donation process by actively reviewing and evaluating partner organizations to ensure the donations you make are effectively used by them for TB care and control.
