Our team at the CSIR is currently working on TB information, education and information (IEC) material. The aim is to educate and communicate information about what TB is, the risk of transmission, ways and means to prevent and control its spread as well as how and where to get treatment.

The material is intended for use by health-care workers (HCWs), members of the community, the visually impaired and hearing impaired persons in outpatient, congregate or household settings. The IEC material is packaged in such a way that the HCWs, patients and family members have similar information and understanding of TB prevention and control, gathered from different mediums of communication, (video with sign-language interpreter; braille and normal text.
