STEPS has trained community health care workers from TB affected communities to find missing people with TB, supporting TB patients organization to report service delivery gaps for TB such as drug stock out, nutrition challenges and stigma facing TB patients. In addition, 150 community and religious leaders, influential people and traditional healers have been oriented to include TB in their work. In 2019 alone, TB clubs under TOKIUKI were supported to screen 1504 people and among them, 370 (24%) reported TB symptom and 38 people were diagnosed and linked to TB treatment. At least 11 patients were referred by religious and community leaders. In addition, Tambua TB posters were widely distributed by these leaders which at the end resulted in increased TB notification at the national level
