Empowering Communities to Control TB

Carlton Evans of Asociacion Benefica PRISMA in Peru will use conditional cash incentives to encourage individuals in poor communities that have been newly diagnosed with tuberculosis to help identify neighboring tuberculosis sufferers and encourage them and their families to receive treatment. Effective treatments exist for most forms of tuberculosis, but reaching the poor and most vulnerable individuals has proven challenging. By incentivizing and educating recently diagnosed tuberculosis sufferers in these communities, they hope to stem the spread of the disease and bring treatments to those who were previously left untreated.
