The Ghana tuberculosis Voice Network, a Civil Society Advocacy group has trained some fifteen vocal volunteers in Kumasi to embark on a massive TB outreach in the Ashanti Region.

The TB Voice Network was first established in the Greater Accra region under the support of the West Africa Aids Foundation after which it won a challenge facility as a Civil Society Organisation to organise TB programmes in worst affected communities.

The personnel who underwent the training on Friday at the premises of the Ashanti Regional Coordinating Council (RCC) are all persons who have once suffered from Tuberculosis and been treated.

Speaking to Ultimate News, the General Secretary of the TB Voice Network Jerry Amoah Larbie noted that the roles of the volunteers will be to draw public attention to TB and to encourage those living with the condition to adhere to treatment.

The Ghana National TB Voice Network, a tuberculosis (TB) focused organisation, has organised a workshop for support groups in the Upper West Region to equip them with advocacy skills in the campaign against TB stigmatisation.

The workshop was held to share experiences for effective advocacy on the rights of TB patients and support them in the effort to get full treatment.

Mr Jerry Amoah Larbi, National Secretary of the Network and a resource person at the workshop, said stigmatisation has impeded treatment of TB and eroded the self-confidence of many patients who have defaulted in their treatment.
