TB DOTS Clap for a TB-Free Philippines

Recently, the TB or Not TB Team visited two schools in Quezon City for its #TBDay school tour—San Vicente Elementary School (September 8) and North Fairview Elementary School (September 22).  


As part of the Department of Health’s (DOH) campaign to raise awareness on tuberculosis (TB), the students participated in fun and educational activities, which centered on fighting the stigma and debunking the myths and misconceptions about the disease.

Moreover, the highlight of the #TBDay school tour was the teaching of a children’s clap game.   Called “TB DOTS Clap Game,” it aims to educate students about TB DOTS (Directly Observed Treatment, Short-Course), an effective method recommended by the World Health Organization (WHO) to cure TB and stop its spread in communities. In the Philippines, TB DOTS is offered for free thru accredited DOTS Centers.


TB DOTS Clap Game
Sa tuwing umuubo ang tatay ko
Natatakot ako baka TB na ito
Pero wag ka, wag ka
TB ay nagagamot
Kapag kumukonsulta ka

Di dapat mahiya kung may TB ka
Matanda man o bata
May ngipin o wala
Mahirap, mayaman
Bariles, payat o seksi pa
TB ay tatama kung mahina ka
