Communications & Advocacy Work Stream

The goal of the Communication and Advocacy Working Group (CAWG) is to raise global awareness and support for MPTs through communications, outreach and advocacy.  The CAWG has identified key priority regions where work is underway, including India, China, Europe, Kenya, South Africa, and the United States.

The CAWG works with IMPT members and other stakeholders to develop messages and outreach materials targeting different regions and disciplines.  The CAWG has established Regional Communications Advisory Committees in India, South Africa and Kenya.   Outcomes from these include an MPT Regional Task Force housed at the Indian Council of Medical Research (ICMR) in India.

Outreach materials developed by the CAWG can be found in the Resource Center.
