Contribution

Please tell us how your organization will contribute to the Global Plan to Stop TB by briefly describing its involvement in any of the areas of work listed below:

TB Care Delivery:
ARII works with a wide range of social groups, non-governmental organizations, religious groups and students bodies. We work alongside people in communities to help build relationships with key people and organizations and to identify common concerns.These ARII Ambassadors are equipped with the requisit skills on early detection and provide the beneficiary communities with basic knowledge as; resources availbale for those affected, processes for testing and aid institutions available in Ghana. The campaign seeks to erase any cultural and superstitious beliefs associated with the disease and that prevent people to seek medical attention. This creates opportunities for the community to learn new knowledge together and together kick against TB.

We empower these individuals and groups of people by providing these groups with the skills they need to affect change in their own communities.
May 2012- Community Outreach Initiative

December-2012 Stop TB life walk from the University of Ghana
