The team arrived at about 11:00 am, they first converged in the conference hall of St Kizito Clinic, where they were received by the Medical Director Dr Alda Gemmani and the team head of the TB LON 3 Project, Dr Ndidi Nwosu. After addressing them, they moved to the Directly Observed Treatment Short-course (DOTs) unit, where TB patients are attended to. Then, they split into 4 groups and began the interview, which lasted for over an hour.
