Tuberculosis (TB) is now on par with HIV/AIDS as the greatest killer worldwide due to a single infectious agent (World Health Organization). To address this health epidemic, Discovery Learning Alliance is creating "Inside TB," a film for audiences across sub-Saharan Africa addressing how TB works.
In a variety of settings, TB and HIV are devastating communities across sub-Saharan Africa. "Inside TB" is a unique approach to TB education, replacing misunderstanding with facts, demystifying the disease and empowering people to make informed health decisions. Discovery Learning Alliance is seeking funding on a continuing basis for distribution and education materials for "Inside TB."
The film will demonstrate the science of how TB works in a personal, practical and memorable way, replacing misunderstanding with facts, demystifying the disease and motivating informed health decisions. The goal will be personal and systemic behavior change that lowers TB infection rates and increases the percentage of people seeking and adhering to treatment.
In the unlikely event that we are unable to fully fund and produce this film, your donations will be used to support our non-profit projects. Discovery Learning Alliance uses the power of media to transform education and improve lives in marginalized communities around the world. DLA's school-based interventions increase student retention, enrollment, attendance and learning, and critically - student motivation.
