Donate now to decrease tuberculosis!

Source: WHO, Global TB Control 2010 report

I am once again asking for money.  However, this time is for a large project that is completely community-initiated.  The chief of the health post in Ndioum approached me asking for help for a project of his.  He was recently trained in Mbour on tuberculosis and wants to pass this knowledge to Ndioum and the two surrounding communities of Toulde Galle and Gamadji Sare.  This project has two phases: (1) health worker training on how to best control TB and (2) a social forum where important community members, health workers, and TB patients talk about the issues of the disease.  The chief states that people in the area often do not come to the health post to receive treatment due to some of the negative stigmatizations associated with the disease.  This project hopes to mobilize the entire community towards decreasing the prevalence of this disease.  I need to raise $1222.83 for this project.

Please donate and see a more detailed description of the project here!
