From 9-11th May 2019, Lisa Redwood, our PhD student and Ian Hodgson trained a group of NGO’s in Hanoi on how to facilitate 'Inside Out: Dealing with self-stigma and shame for people with tuberculosis (TB)'. This toolkit was developed last year by KNCV Tuberculosis Foundation and The Work for Change.

During the training course, our researchers and colleagues at KNCV, SCDI and Hai Dang group discussed the toolkit and learned how to apply it into their daily work.

This workshop will be rolled out as a randomised controlled trial to patients with tuberculosis and MDR-TB to evaluate its effect on self-stigma, wellbeing and treatment success.
