• Education and awareness about TB be widened, deepen and be more visible at all public places, to help minimize common operational constraints in case detection and management/Targeted education and training should also be given chemical sellers, traditional ´doctors´ and healing/ prayer camp operators to identify TB symptons for early referal to health centres for diagnosis and treatment.
• Maternal Health: Tajaf Foundation, in its bid to ensure maternal death free society and also reduce the incidence of child mortality in the rural communities, carried out a four day house to house sensitization exercise among women. The objective was to create awareness among women on the possible causes of maternal deaths, infant mortality and how to prevent or limit its occurance.
• Poverty reduction: One of the major points of reference was to target beneficiaries of the poor and facilitate the process of cash and non- cash transfers to them. Whilst some of the selected beneficiaries were given direct cash transfers, some were given skill training and others were also given basic educational support.
