The founder of the organization is a public health expert who has had various training programmes on TB and HIV control and has been the programme manager of the Gombe State TB and Leprosy Control Programme for over 10 years and HIV for 5 years. He has contributed to the NTPs TB control efforts by working as a consultant across Nigeria. The interest in TB control is borne out of the devastating impact of the infamous Boko Haram Insurgency to TB control in the North Eastern Nigeria and the inadequate current efforts invested in the control in this region that is witnessing one of the worse humanitarian crisis globally. I am currently involve in TB detection among internally displaced population in 2 LGAs in Gombe Sate through GomSACA TB REACH Wave 5 grant and we plan to secure funding through donors and partners to increase TB detection across the Zone
