Organization Description:
1. Taonga HBC which was established with the support of there social workers living with HIV who had also suffered from Tuberculosis. TB patients were completely cured and the three spearheaded the formation of Taonga HBC specifically among other diseases to address TB issues and raise awareness to the communities that TB is curable through their personal testimonies, role plays and dramas. TB can be prevented, treated and cured.
2. TB continues to be number one killer of people in the HIV positive community. In 2017, 1.6 million people died from TB including 300,000 people with HIV representing more deaths than any infectious disease. Therefore as cured TB patients we wanted to fight the stigma normally associated with TB, advocate for Health Rights including the TB patients charter but above all, happily spread key messages that TB is curable because we are there as living examples
4. We are already vigorously creating awareness about prevention through our door to door activities, community radio campaigns and rural outreach activities
4. Going forward Taonga HBC feels and believes that TB response must be an uncludive, comprehensive response within the broader Sustainable Development Agenda. A comprehensive approach to move towards Zero Tuberculosis deaths. No one-size-fits all approach can succeed anymore

We obtain updates of best practices globally and use them to suit our local context. In this vein one very prominent example is the documentation of the TB Patients Charter to suit our local needs such as suitable language, presentations, layouts, etc. Using the Global (WHO) Strategies we are addressing TB/HIV in one Accord i.e. designing programmes that compliment each other as TB and HUV. are inter-related
