Community Health Workers (CHWs) in Chiapas, Mexico with TB educational materials provided by HealthRight.  Indigenous communities in Chiapas have long been marginalized, suffering disproportionately from TB and other diseases as a result.  This past year, HealthRight trained hundreds of CHWs to educate their communities about TB prevention and treatment and to identify and refer those infected for treatment.
