The National Platform of Civil Society Organizations (CSOs abbreviated) was created in 2013 in order to strengthen the joint efforts in the fight against tuberculosis in Moldova. Currently, 11 NGOs working in the field of tuberculosis control and prevention are part of this platform. But we want to see more organizations joining the initiative. Therefore, we invite to join the Platform all the active organizations in the country that are working in this field and want to advocate the rights and interests of those affected by tuberculosis.
Currently, the Platform's Secretariat belongs to AFI.
