Dr Wawa provides guidance to Upendo’s community workers on primary care basics and TB care. Here he explains to Nurdinir Mayoyo how to coach people on remembering their TB tablets. “It is good to advise them to take them at the same time of day – for example, when a favourite radio programme is on the air,” he says.
