TB Care Delivery:
AMSA will focus efforts in facilitating community health education, and advocacy for empowering women as set by the World Health Organization
1)Empowering women will be critical for the success of the Strategy and to reach the goal of ending the TB epidemic. More women in affected communities and women’s advocates need to be engaged in efforts to design and enhance access to TB services for women.
2)TB prevention, diagnosis and treatment should form core components during reproductive life cycle. This is vital, especially in high HIV and TB burden settings in Africa.
3)Human rights and equity challenges should be effectively addressed to ensure that socio-cultural barriers and stigma are effectively eliminated
4)providing women access to high-quality care, free of catastrophic costs and social repercussions.
