March 24 is World TB Day. Tuberculosis (TB) is a major concern for people living with HIV (PLHIV) as their impaired immune systems make them particularly vulnerable to the disease. Providing the right care & support to PLHIV with TB co-infection remains a priority to reduce related morbidity and mortality.
With support from the Global Fund, our Vihaan programme is launching a national campaign on March 24, World TB Day 2014, to increase TB testing and treatment among vulnerable PLHIV. Under the campaign, Vihaan Care & Support Centres (CSCs) will launch posters and organise TB/HIV co-infection awareness activities for clients across the country. A look at the posters launched today:
