The TB PhotoVoice Project
provides cameras to tuberculosis (TB) affected community members (survivors, caregivers, friends, family) who take photographs
that help them identify and improve their communities. The photographs represent what is happening in the participants’
lives and serve as a point for discussion about what can be done to change the present situation in regards to TB, stigma,
education and related issues. These photographs and their accompanying narratives give a face and voice to TB.
http://www.tbsurvivalproject.org/ The Tuberculosis Survival Project
(TBSP) was launched World TB Day 2006. The project started to raise awareness and provide information about
Tuberculosis (TB) and Multidrug-resistant tuberculosis (MDR-TB), to offer a peer support service to those on the TB treatment
journey, to provide a facility whereby people can leave their own and read about each other's experience of having the
disease and to provide country specific information so people can learn about what is going on in their region in regards
to the disease.
