marginalized grassroots people particularly women, girls and children in
the semi urban and rural areas.

made the organization to conduct awareness campaigns with communities,

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:

Drug-Resistant TB:
Enhance the commitment of communities on those that are infected with drug resistant drugs that there is an option for further treatment.

TB-HIV are related diseases we are advocating for effective communications to grassroots people who are affected by TB-HIV. The advocacy is for global recognition to reduce the infections and encourage people to go for HIV test and access treatment in the health facilities. Community health facilities should have staff that will closely work with people in the communities to reduce the cost and travels of those affected with TB-HIV.

Laboratory Strengthening:
We advocate for government resource commitment to budget allocation on procurement of the equipment in the laboratories of health facilities. The strengthened labs will reduce the number of people whose results are taking long to be known.

New TB Drugs:
The government of Malawi is committed in procuring drugs and that there may be no scarcity of drugs. We are em phasing to communities on new drugs that are taken for short term and are affective.


Declaration of interests:
