Spreading Mass Awareness on TB through “HEALTH FOR ALL” Campaign: Vimukti Pothnal

VCT with the collaboration of Ensemble Agissons, France organized TB Mass awareness program in the project area. The “Health for all” campaign attempts to support people with TB patients, who have little help navigating the health care system. Most of the times, due to low awareness and support, TB patients have to go through social stigma, misinformation and abuse. The campaign provides basic information about the disease and helps people with contacts of doctors and counselors. VCT Pothnal aims to spread awareness that TB is a treatable, bacterial infection and people should not be made to feel guilty about contracting the disease. Nursing staff along with ANM visited the houses and gave awareness on TB to the families. So far we could reach 328 families, thus many people appreciated regarding this program.
