KHPT was invited to exhibit at the World TB Day event organized by the Central TB Division (CTD) at Vigyan Bhawan, New Delhi on March 24 and 25. We showcased our behaviour change solutions approach to encourage health seeking behaviour among vulnerable populations through posters, films, project briefs, and infographics. Our work on engaging with Panchayati Raj Institutions to respond to TB and COVID were also displayed. An interactive digital mental health quiz was created for visitors to self-assess their information on TB and mental health. Dignitaries who visited the stall and engaged with the KHPT team included Honourable Minister Mansukh Mandaviya, Minister of Health, Ministry of Health and Family Welfare (MoHFW), Government of India; Ms. Sangita Patel, Director, Health Office, USAID; Dr. Reuben Swamickan, Division Chief, Tuberculosis and Infectious Diseases, USAID; Dr. Amar Shah, Project Management Specialist (Tuberculosis Care and Control), USAID; and Ms. Amrita Goswami, Project Management Specialist, USAID .
