Last Friday, Monte Casino in Johannesburg took part in a world premier of The Lucky Specials, a movie demystifying TB, a disease which has devastated communities across Southern Africa.

This full-length feature film was made through a partnership between USAID, Discovery Learning Alliance, Quizzical Pictures, Howard Hughes Medical Institute, the Welcome Trust, and Management Sciences for Health. The objective of the movie is to provide health workers at all levels with an effective tool to engage communities in TB education, treatment and prevention and drug adherence.
