About Us:

Paradiso TB Patients Trust is a dynamic non-governmental organization committed to providing people infected and affected by TB, HIV and AIDS the best services and information required for informed healthcare-seeking decisions from a rights-based perspective. Paradiso is led and supported by people living with HIV and those affected by tuberculosis. It runs programs for Tuberculosis (TB) and HIV/AIDS in ten districts in Malawi. The Organization established local TB clubs composed of TB survivors and people living with HIV (volunteers) housed within the Ministry of Health’s Health facilities which are core to the program implementation of the organisation. The organisation uses the TB Clubs to implement various TB/HIV and AIDS activities in the communities we work in. Currently, the organization works in 10 districts, where it directly delivers TB and HIV/AIDS programs in 61 health centers and Zomba Central Prison. In addition, Paradiso will soon be operating in 174 community sputum collection points with a membership base of over 1,700 volunteers in all districts in Malawi’s northern and central regions.

The project aims to increase TB case finding through community TB interventions by working with volunteers who will manage community sputum collection points, peripheral health centers, and respective district hospitals.
