When the USAID/SUSTAIN project started supporting Akokoro HC III in Oct 2017, they worked with the local council and Sub-County Representative, District Health Management Team (including the TB and Leprosy Supervisor), Beach Management Committee, and facility In-charge to discuss health service delivery including offering improved TB services at the facility. Building on the achievements of the USAID/ASSIST project, the district, local council and sub-county teams were re-activated to continue sensitizing the community; by organizing village meetings to discuss TB signs, symptoms and how the infection spreads.
