Awareness Raising Campaign on Tuberculosis in Nigeria

 

Women’s Rights and Health Project (WRAHP) with support from The Agbami Parties is currently implementing an Awareness Raising Campaign on Tuberculosis in Nigeria. So far the intervention which have been implemented in 4 states (Kano, Kaduna, Oyo and Sokoto) was aimed at increasing awareness and promoting early detection of Tuberculosis among community members in selected LGAs.

The project provided basic information on TB to 48,000 community members and increased the uptake of health services, and engaged partners in local communities through advocacy, capacity building of peer educators and community sensitization to further raise grassroots awareness on TB, prevent the spread of TB and ensure all suspected cases are referred to nearest health centers for adequate treatment and follow up.
