Yuliya Chorna currently works as a freelance global health consultant with the focus on TB in Eastern Europe and Central Asia, particularly on the aspects of strengthening multi-and-intersectoral collaboration to address bio-psychosocial needs of people and communities affected by tuberculosis. From 2014 and till now, she has been actively involved in policy planning, program design and capacity-building for civil society and disease affected-communities to make sure their voices impact decisions on how effective TB care should look like. Her most recent job (end of the position from August 2020) was of an Executive Director of TB Europe Coalition, an advocacy network which is active in Western and Eastern Europe, as well as Central Asia which aims to ensure civil society is driving the TB response.
Yuliya serves on the regional and global taskforces and committees, such as Civil Society Task Force hosted by WHO Global TB Program; Developing Country NGO Delegation to the Board of the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, TB and Malaria; Regional Collaborating Committee on Accelerated Response to Tuberculosis, HIV and Viral Hepatitis (RCC-THV) and Technical Advisory Group on Tuberculosis (TAG-TB) at WHO/Europe.
Yuliya comes from social work background and that perspective drives her passion for social justice, advocacy for health equity and end of stigma towards people and communities affected by TB.
