The TB stigma module was developed through a partnership between the ZAMBART Project and International HIV/AIDS Alliance. It has been designed to be a both a part of a bigger HIV stigma toolkit and to be a stand alone tool for specifically tackling TB stigma.
The exercises in the module were developed with TB patients, health workers and community TB support staff and can be used with a variety of audiences to help tackle TB stigma. The module was written by and for trainers. It has been designed to help trainers plan and organise participatory educational sessions with community leaders or organised groups to raise awareness and promote practical action to challenge HIV and TB stigma and discrimination.
It has been developed in response to the need to address TB stigma especially where TB and HIV co-infection rates are high. The publication contains a range of participatory games, exercises and picture tools to help address TB stigma, suitable for a range of contexts and settings.
