The TB Stigma Measurement Guide has arrived

KNCV Tuberculosis Foundation announces the arrival of The TB Stigma Measurement Guidance, developed by the USAID funded, KNCV led Challenge TB project: the largest TB project of its kind, operating in 22 countries worldwide.

Stigma and TB

For many people with TB, stigma or the fear of stigma greatly influences their health seeking behaviors. When patients delay or completely forego treatment for this preventable and curable disease TB flourishes, further hindering global control efforts.

A way forward

The TB Stigma Measurement Guidance offers a way forward—beyond stigma. It is a user-friendly manual that will assist those wishing to understand TB stigma, develop and measure their own TB stigma reduction interventions. Ultimately reducing stigma, will lower barriers to TB care and make it truly accessible for all.

The TB Stigma Measurement Guide can be downloaded here.

KNCV has been fighting TB since its establishment in 1903. Over the past 117 years, the organization has acquired indispensable knowledge and experience in the field of effective TB control, resulting in pre-elimination in the Netherlands and significant contributions to global evidence generation, policy development and TB program implementation worldwide.
