"Now is the time to take part in fighting TB, so don't wait for a friend, father, sister or brother or neighbour to die because of TB. Come and support SATVI in finding a new TB vaccine, NOW IS THE TIME FOR YOU TO GET INVOLVED."
Community Advisory Board Chairperson Mr Bosch Willemse
CommunicationsSATVI's research is supported through strategic marketing and communications, community engagement and advocacy activities. A small dedicated Marketing and Communications team, based in Cape Town and at the project site, drives efforts to support, profile and engage with our stakeholders, locally and internationally.
Key stakeholders include study participants, communities, study sponsors, partners, consortia and collaborators, academia, advocacy networks, legislatures, local, provincial and national government, as well as the media.
Our strategic activities have seen us profiling our research at national and international conferences, engaging with the media, hosting visits to our facilities, collaborating with partners in advocacy interventions, producing media products, conducting events, and drawing on popular culture in edutainment interventions.
