The “Be Healthy!” TB Awareness Campaign

On October 5, 2013, more than 400 people participated in activities led by the Project at the USAID Field Day in Zaporizhya. These activities included a public questionnaire on TB, free personal consultations with a TB doctor, and a TB awareness lottery game, all of which were first offered at the USAID Field Day in Simferopol. Other activities provided by the Project included a “Stop TB” target game, drawing activities, and a TB-related memory game. 

One major accomplishment of this event is that a total of 313 citizens chose to receive free consultations on TB prevention, diagnosis, and treatment from oblast and city physicians. All of the above activities were led in partnership with the Zaporizhya Oblast TB Dispensary.

Notable visitors to the Project’s activity tent included the city mayor, the head of the oblast health department, and the oblast’s chief TB doctor.
