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.
