Tuberculosis

Our commitment to eradicate TB epidemic is unwavering.

Integral to our mission, TASO’s Tuberculosis program plays a vital role in the fight against HIV/AIDS. Tuberculosis (TB) is a common opportunistic infection among people living with HIV (PLHIV), and TASO recognizes the significance of addressing both diseases concurrently. Our program is designed to provide comprehensive care, emphasizing the interconnection between TB and HIV/AIDS.

Beyond the HIV/AIDS Community

TB is an airborne disease, making it highly contagious, and its impact extends far beyond those living with HIV. This disease is formidable health threat due to its ability to spread rapidly and affect communities, TASO recognizes the urgency of addressing TB not only as a co-existing condition with HIV but also as a standalone public health concern. The risk is not confined to those with weakened immune systems, as TB can exploit vulnerabilities in anyone, making it a pressing public health issue.

TASO’s Tuberculosis Program adopts a multi-faceted approach to combat the spread of TB. Stigma surrounding TB further complicates efforts to control the disease. People affected by TB may face discrimination and isolation, hindering their access to care and support. TASO is dedicated to combating this stigma through advocacy, education, and community engagement. By fostering understanding and dispelling misconceptions, we aim to create an environment that encourages early diagnosis, treatment adherence, and ultimately, the reduction of TB transmission.

By addressing TB, TASO contributes to a holistic approach to health, ensuring that individuals receive the multifaceted support necessary to combat the complex challenges posed by this disease. We are committed to not only providing medical care but also fostering a supportive community that stands united against stigma, ensuring that individuals affected by TB, both within and outside the HIV community, receive the care and understanding they deserve.
