The Australian TB Caucus (ATBC) brings together Members of the House of Representatives and Senators with a keen interest in the issue of tuberculosis (TB) and how Australia can best secure support and expertise to contribute to the global eradication of the disease. The Group will focus primarily on the Asia Pacific region and increasing Parliamentary awareness about TB and its impact.
