During the training the active participation of TB community (who had or have TB) provided the opportunity for the practical transition of the event through proposed questions, solution detections, parallel of situations with their own experience…
For them also were presented the perspectives of their involvement in certain TB monitoring processes, ways of knowledge acquisition and referral mechanisms.
Within the training sum-up the representatives of TB community together with the experts watched PSA on early detection of TB which filmed among other activities of “Changes are possible. Act Now” project funded by the TB REP regional program.
As an organization that builds capacity for TB community we believe that these modules of targeted education are also preconditions for having informed activists and civil society.
