Happy Healthy Households
Borough of Brent
London, United Kingdom
The Happy Health Households project combines the efforts of 5 community based organizations, the NHS Brent, and the Brent Council in a partnership with the aim of removing the stigma attached to TB, encouraging early testing and treatment, and increasing awareness about the connection between TB and living conditions in Brent.
Through Happy Healthy Households, 30 community health trainers delivered workshops to community groups to develop the capacity of community members to take action against TB. A community-led photography project and formal exhibition of poor housing conditions engaged members of the broader Brent community about the need for action to improve living conditions in the borough. Additionally, films and presentations about TB were developed and shown on Somali television channels and radio sought to engage residents in thinking about TB without stigma.
