  • Introduction:
  • World Tuberculosis Day is a global event observed annually on March 24th to raise awareness about tuberculosis (TB) and mobilize efforts to eliminate this infectious disease. TB remains a significant public health challenge worldwide, affecting millions of people and causing considerable morbidity and mortality.

  • The Client-Centered Approach:
  • A client-centered approach to addressing tuberculosis focuses on the unique needs, experiences, and perspectives of individuals living with TB. This approach recognizes that every person's journey with TB is distinct, influenced by various factors such as socioeconomic status, cultural background, and access to healthcare. By adopting a client-centered approach, we can enhance the effectiveness of TB prevention, treatment, and support programs.
