Eka's Story: Laying the Foundation for Success to Stop Tuberculosis in Georgia

This is the story about the journey of a courageous doctor in the country of Georgia who received training from PATH in advocacy, communication, and social mobilization (ACSM) to link together national- and community-level efforts to fight tuberculosis (TB). The ACSM approach helps communities learn how to mobilize political commitment and resources for TB and educate people about TB and its cure, to improve case detection and treatment adherence. These interventions are critical to combating stigma and discrimination and empowering people affected by TB. This story is one of a series of success stories that showcase some of the ways that PATH’s work in TB is having an impact on people’s lives in a variety of settings around the world. This work was made possible through generous funding from the US Agency for International Development.
