What we do

TANCDA works to create the necessary infrastructure to efficiently coordinate the activities of the associations so that they work in harmony for a common goal. Its success depends on the level to which it allows free participation and expression by all members and anyone else interested, fairness, accountability, transparency and efficiency all of which are reflected in the constitution of TANCDA and its constituent associations.

TANCDA focuses on developing its capacity for outreach, lobbying/advocacy, governance, patient education and support and strengthening its popular support by membership recruitment and branding itself via events, services for the patients in form of education and support, and media coverage.
