The Tasweer-e-Zindagi TB Photovoice project aims to create awareness about tuberculosis (TB) by putting the voices of people affected by TB at the forefront of dialogue on this disease. The project uses Photovoice to understand the situation faced by all those affected by TB: patients, their families, and community health workers, and to share their stories with community members, policy makers, and relevant organizations to raise awareness and support for TB.
Participants were eagerly involved in the project, taking snapshots of their daily lives and discussing the images they shared. The photographs document various aspects of the disease. While TB poses many difficulties and challenges, there are also a number of factors that support patients and people affected by the disease during their path to recovery. The project has been very successful in understanding the barriers that impede TB prevention, treatment and care. It is imperative that the lessons learned from the project are incorporated in TB programs and future projects.
