TRIOs has associated with TB Alert India to undertake an Operational Research for the project ‘Campaign for Education, Prevention and Treatment of TB (CEPT- II)” in Tamil Nadu. This Project is funded by TB Alert UK with a grant from the Big Lottery Fund in the UK. TBAI is sister concern of TB Alert in the UK. All of its projects aim to supplement the National TB Program (NTP), mobilize and link local communities in fighting against TB.
The operation research will consist of an evaluation and need assessment to understand how members of TB associations are delivering the envisaged responsibilities, what skills they possess to give the required deliverables, and in what areas they require capacity building to perform the expected roles. The assignment will include a KAP survey of TB association members along with in depth discussions with stakeholders especially people who had or currently suffering from TB.
This research will enable TB Alert India to understand the gaps in the project and suggest revision of existing strategies or addition of new strategies to achieve the intended goal of the project.
