Ghana National TB Voice Network was founded in 2007 by Chief Austin Arinze Obiefuna with the support of Afro Global Alliance and Chest Clinic, Korle Bu Teaching Hospital. In 2013, with the support of the West Africa AIDS Foundation the network received capacity building to reform its intervention approach as a Community group.
TB Voice Network is a network of people who have survived tuberculosis and affected by the disease and wish to share their experience with other infected patients with the hope of battling the negative consequences of TB.
Often TB could be more easily prevented and/or cured by providing adequate access to information and knowledge and by fighting stigma and discrimination. Starting as a small community originally based in Accra, our aim is to empower TB communities not only in Accra but also in the rest of Ghana in order to build their capacity and increase their knowledge of the disease.
