Calling all Community Leaders: You can help stop tuberculosis (TB) in New York City!
Although TB rates have declined in New York City (NYC), there continue to be pockets of
TB transmission citywide. We’re counting on you and other community leaders to help us increase awareness about TB and the free TB services available from the Department of Health and Mental Hygiene. Comic-strip-style posters are now available for display and distribution to your membership and clients.
In July and August 2009, these posters were distributed to businesses in Harlem. Their simple message is: If you have the SIGNS of TB (Cough, Fever, Appetite Loss and Feeling Tired all the Time), get a FREE TB TEST!
Posters are available in English, Spanish, Chinese, Haitian Creole, French, Filipino, Hindi, Bengali, Urdu and Tibetan. To order posters you may email us at TBTraining@health.nyc.gov
or call 212-442-9968.
Thanks for your help. Together, we can stop TB in NYC!
