Is your organization legally registered in your country: Yes
Organization Reach: National
Organization Description:
Child Rights Information and Documentation Centre (CRIDOC) is a non-profit organisation established to create access to information on issues that affect children. We pursue the following mission statement: “To contribute towards the promotion of rights and development of children and young people through information exchange, information documentation and information dissemination."

We are interested in tuberculosis because we have realised that, unlike HIV and AIDS, Paediatric TB does not have a high priority in Malawi because of the perception that children are not usually infectious, and often, limited resources mean that infectious cases have priority.

We have therefore integrated TB in our "School Outreach Programme" which is one of the five core programmes that CRIDOC implements. Under the progreamme, we have created child rights clubs and established libraries in schools. We use these structures to raise various issues that affect children in school, including health-related issues like AIDS and TB.
