Community Mobilization

World TB Day is a global event designed to cultivate public awareness about TB still being an epidemic in much of the world, causing the deaths of nearly one-and-a-half million people each year, mostly in developing countries. For the last eight years in a row USTP has spearheaded commemorating of this important national event at both national and district level for selected districts. This has provided opportunity to the communities getting knowledge on the disease and has contributed to community empowerment as the citizens fight the epidemic. Some communities get outreach TB, TB/HIV and HIV services taken to their neighborhood.

Keeping TB on the agenda, A role for all.
