TB EDUCATION IN SCHOOLS ( AND THE LINK TO HIV/AIDS

SANTA Johannesburg has identified a need for improved awareness of TB and the link to HIV/AIDS. Within the last two years, our National body has increased their TB education presentations to companies. Our organisation does not see the need to duplicate this service, and we have therefore confined our TB education presentations to schools, Faith Based oganisations, other NGO’s, sports and social clubs throughout the JHB area since August 2007.
