Latent TB Awareness and Support

Raising awareness of the prevention, detection and early diagnosis of latent TB among BME communities in Manchester and Oldham and supporting people with latent TB to improve treatment compliance.



Support for people with latent TB

Many people are offered testing and treatment for latent TB, as this is a good way to help prevent getting active TB in the future. As part of our partnership work with GP's, BHA supports people with latent TB to improve treatment compliance, promoting self-care and addressing any wider concerns that may be detrimental to patients’ health.

TB Awareness and Support

Tuberculosis (TB) is a curable disease caused by a bacterium called Mycobacterium tuberculosis. It can affect any part of the body but people with disease in the lungs may transmit the organism to others when they cough.
