The Comprehensive Education and Health Programme for the marginalized communities in Gomia has several actions related to reduction of cases of tuberculosis, community health, education and the empowerment of women. One of the initiatives is to raise awareness of the causes and spread of tuberculosis and AIDS patients through education and prevention and to provide specialized services at the clinic. Also, to ensure women’s health, specific training is provided on issues that affect them and self-help groups are encouraged so that they become aware of the importance of being financially independent. Special attention is also given to children and young people, especially girls, by offering them activities focused on equal opportunities in society, self-esteem and learning.
