TB_Toolkit_Superheroes.png

In the spirit of joint responsibility and ownership for a targeted effort to address the dual epidemics, ARASA in collaboration with partner organisations from across Southern and East Africa; undertook to create accessible and scientifically accurate training and advocacy tool, to promote the accelerated implementation of the Six I’s for HIV/TB.

As Mandela stated in his remarks, on "Confronting the Joint HIV/TB Epidemics" at the 2004 XV International AIDS Conference (Bangkok), Nelson Mandela confirmed that; “We have known how to cure TB for more than 50 years. What we have lacked is the will and the resources to quickly diagnose people with TB and get them the treatment they need. The world has made defeating AIDS a top priority. This is a blessing. But TB remains ignored. Today we are calling on the world to recognize that we can't fight AIDS unless we do much more to fight TB as well." Nelson Mandela (2014).
