Anna Grace Tribble
My name is Anna Grace Tribble. I am an American anthropology student in my last year at university in North Carolina. I worked with BNMT on research for my Senior Honors Thesis in Anthropology. BNMT was the best organization with which to work because of the personnel resources they had to offer. I studied the chain of communication between the DTLOs, the FCHV, and their communities in the districts of Dhanusa and Mahottari. I specifically studied the more urban work of the FCHV in the large municipalities of Janakpur and Jaleshwor. I was able to interview FCHV who were and were not involved in TB Reach. After many interviews and surveys, I am working to understand the gaps in knowledge about tuberculosis between each level. While there is still knowledge that needs to be shared, the FCHV and the communities where I worked strongly associate TB with the biomedical sphere of medicine, a huge victory compared to years past. BNMT Nepal made my research possible!
