Friends for International TB Relief or “FIT” is a registered non-profit organization whose work is based on the vision of a world free of Tuberculosis (TB). Our mission is to promote progress on the field of TB prevention and to stop the spread of the disease.

Over the past three years, we have actively participated in the eradication of TB by providing financial and technical assistance to local organizations involved in TB care and control in India and Vietnam. Simultaneously, we engaged in advocacy work through fundraising events in Germany and other industrialized countries to contribute to build and improve awareness about this global threat.

Since 2014 we have been supporting the implementation of a grassroots TB elimination intervention based on a holistic package of outreach activities, stakeholder engagement and comprehensive care. Besides our project work in high TB burden countries, FIT also organizes events to strengthen the awareness and understanding about TB.

FIT was founded in 2012 and consists of TB activists as well as former patients. Our members reside all over the world ranging from Germany to Vietnam, Australia and the U.S., where they do their part in raising awareness and fighting the disease. Past and current partners include the Global Health & Education Trust, Otsuka, Stop TB Partnership, RESULTS Australia, HCMC Public Health Association, Vietnam National TB Control Program, Johnson & Johnson and most recently via the IMPACT TB project FIT has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 733174.
