Contribution

Please tell us how your organization will contribute to the Global Plan to Stop TB by briefly describing its involvement in any of the areas of work listed below:

TB Care Delivery:
• To facilitate, coordinate and encourage a workplace HIV/AIDS, Tuberculosis (TB), and Malaria integrated programs and policies that will mitigate the impact of the pandemic within the private sector (companies and corporations) operating within the Republic of Liberia;

• To respond to the challenges of HIV/AIDS, TB and Malaria in the workplace through the formation of a partnership with the private sector, through the Liberia Chamber of Commerce (LCC), for the promotion, prevention, care and treatment of the pandemic and ensure a uniform and united fight against the spread of the diseases and discrimination in the workplace;

• To build partnership with the government, CSO and the International Community to enhance and facilitate the use of the private sector’s core competencies and products in the timely response to the challenges and spread of the diseases


TB-HIV:
. LIBCAA conducted a weeklong community survey of knowledge, perceptions and practices on HIV/AIDS and TB control and prevention in the rural area of Liberia which revealed that community residents have little knowledge about HIV/AIDS and TB control, prevention and care. The survey also showed that community residents stand the risk of contacting the pandemics if nothing is done to empower them with knowledge, skills and strategies to combat the diseases. predicated upon this research, a number of programs have been demonstrated in seven of our 15 counties to raise sufficient sensitization on HIV/TB
