-for prevention, care, and support.

- there is always stigma and discrimination with/against individuals with TB in the community because of their real or perceived TB status, as discrimination and stigmatization of people with TB causes delays in diagnosis and makes it more difficult to cure patients.there is a need to take part in order to psychologically care for these patients and also educating the community for social acceptance/inclusion
