Apart from understanding the basics of the organization and gaining a deeper understanding of the data models for a couple of the six activities, they took us on a field visit. We went to a very, very poor area where construction workers live and watched how a PSI field officer educated them on Tuberculosis (TB). Because most are illiterate, the officer used story cards to tell them what signs to look for and what to do if they think they have TB. When we arrived everyone seem to come up to us to find out what was going on. In a matter of minutes we were surrounded. I never felt unsafe, just way out of place. Plus, since the rate of TB is high in that setting .. I'm sure I'm going to need to get tested when I return to the U.S. <sigh>. Anyway, here's a quick pick of the people being taught about TB. Until tomorrow. ~ Dan.
