To join Ending Workplace TB, company leaders must sign our EWTB Charter which commits companies to taking four initial activities to help tackle workplace TB. They are:
1. Raise awareness of TB - its symptoms, causes and treatments - within their own workforces, and where possible, the wider community.
2. Appoint a company focal point to join our network calls and liaise with company efforts to tackle workplace TB.
3. Work with Ending Workplace TB to explore the costs of TB to their company.
4. Encourage suppliers to improve their policies and procedures regarding TB within their supply chains.
Companies that support the charter receive a membership card that can be used on social media and other communications channels.

TB IN SUPPLY CHAINS
Modern supply chains stretch around the world and can involve hundreds of different companies combining to create a single product. Ensuring that each of those companies has good workplace health policies to tackle respiratory pathogens is a major challenge.
We have produced a short implementation guide for companies that want to support our efforts to end workplace TB but may not have high rates of TB within their direct operations.
If your suppliers are interested in taking steps to tackle workplace TB but aren't sure how to proceed, encourage them to contact us at: .
If you need any further information on how companies in low-burden settings can help, please don't hesitate to contact us at the same address.
