Information Education Communication (IEC) materials in Ethiopia

This Ethiopian mother and child gave permission to use their picture for TB information material. Both were diagnosed with smear-positive pulmonary tuberculosis (TB). The child fell sick and was diagnosed with pulmonary TB four months after the mother was diagnosed.image_of_poster_2

In these photos (© KNCV / TB CARE I) the mother was taking her child for directly-observed TB treatment (DOT) to the TB clinic. The mother had already completed her anti-TB treatment.
The posters are designed to raise public awareness on the risk of TB transmission from adults to children who are in close contact (e.g.  when living together in one household).

The posters also provide information on the possibility of preventing TB in children through Isoniazid Preventive Therapy (IPT), if the children are brought to health facilities for contact screening whenever anyone in the family is diagnosed with pulmonary TB .

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.
