Public awareness and health promotion

Not every cough is covid – think TB! Social media toolkit.

This social media toolkit can be used by anyone wishing to raise awareness of TB in their community. This is more important than ever, with the world’s attention turned towards the coronavirus pandemic.  

Unfortunately, because the symptoms of TB, covid-19 and long-covid are often similar it is possible for TB to be overlooked. This toolkit helps differentiate the symptoms of these conditions and asks people to Think TB!
