Kunming, China: Lunchtime outreach at construction site

In China, a new approach to spreading the word about MDR-TB.

The CAP-TB outreach team recently launched a series of visits to Kunming City’s large construction sites, giving presentations to the workers about TB and lung health. Construction sites in Kunming are an ideal place to reach workers from the “migrant and mobile” population, many of whom relocate to Kunming from other areas of China to find work. Focusing education and prevention messages to these workers -- including key information about smoking cessation, TB control and prevention, and diabetes -- reaches a marginalized group of people with decreased access to health care.
