We are basically an NGO seeking to promote the virtues of honesty, transparency and accountability in all our programs and engagements in Nigeria. We have worked in the areas of good governance and anti-corruption, education, HIV/AIDS advocacy and sensitization and TB. We arr interested in TB because we believe that in Nigeria, part of the problems of TB control is corruption showing itself through dishonesty,lack of transparency and accountability. In addition, many community are devastated by the disease and little is done to alleviate thier sufferings. We feel we have something to contribute, no matter how little.

TB Care Delivery:
Our organization plans to contribute to the Global Plan to Stop TB by engaging care-givers and empowering people with TB and their communities. One of the most important reasons for involving communities in TB control is to make it easier for poor and vulnerable groups to access TB services. The effective empowerment of communities succeeds in addressing economic, social and cultural barriers and geographical isolation. If people affected by TB can be involved in designing, planning and implementing control strategies, their concerns and the daily difficulties they face will be better reflected.

Public stigma is often the reason people with TB do not seek diagnosis or care. Improved public education and awareness-raising initiatives about what causes TB, how it is transmitted and whether it can be cured can help to mitigate the stigma, not only among health-care workers but also among the general public.

Engaging all care providers in TB care and control through public–private mix (PPM) approaches and promoting the International Standards for Tuberculosis Care (ISTC) are among the core components of the global Stop TB Strategy and this is now widely accepted as integral and essential to achieving universal access to quality TB care.
We believe that by targeting at least one community every year this will help in no small way to DOTS Expansion and Expansion in Adamawa State, Nigeria.
