  • 2. Advocacy efforts taken for TB care and control
  • 3. WHO estimates that only 66% of incident TB cases are detected. This translates into 3 million NEW TB cases being missed every year. Major efforts are needed to ensure all cases are detected, notified and treated. In this connection: 1.Incresed use of new diagnostic is ensuring that significantly more TB patients are to be correctly diagnosed. 2.TB diagnostics and laboratory to be strengthening.
  • 4. 3.Laboratory confirmation of TB and Drug resistance is key to ensuring that individuals with TB signs and symptoms are correctly diagnosed and treated. In 2013, 58% of the 4.9 million Pulmonary TB patients notified Globally were bacteriologically confirmed via a WHO recommended test, including rapid tests such as Xpert MTB/RIF. In late 2013 WHO expanded its recommendations on the use of Xpert MTB/RIF to include the diagnosis of TB in children and some forms Extra pulmonary TB. By June 2014, 108 countries with access to Xpert MTB/RIF is concessional prices had started to use the technology, and more than one million text cartridge were being procured each quarter.
  • 5. MY ADVOVACY APPROCH In Tamil Nadu, such advanced diagnostic instruments have been provided by the Tamil Nadu Govt. only few laboratories in the state and it is being supplied only where there is Medical Colleges districts. In my Cuddalore District, there is no Medical Colleges. So I taken up this issue as a challenge and must be got the machine to the District TB Centre, Govt. Head Quarters Hospital Cuddalore, since there is no Medical Collages and advocates for the same.
  • 6. As a first step, I approached the Chief Minister of Tamil Nadu through Chief Minister’s special cell , St.George Forte, Chennai with a request to supply ONE GENEXPERT MACHINE TO DISTRICT TB CENTRE, GOVT. HEAD QUARTERS HOSPITAL, CUDDALORE, FOR THE BENFIT OF POOR PEOPLE LIVING IN CUDDALORE DISTRICT.(Copy of letter enclosed).
  • 7. Second step, I was approached through letter communication to Health Secretary, Director of Medical & Rural Health services, Chennai, Director of Public Health and Preventive Medicine, Chennai, NRHM Director ,Chennai and all Medical & Health Directors with a request to provide one GENEEXPERT MACHINE TO CUDDALORE WITH REASANABLE JUSTIFICATIONS.
  • 8. With my repeated requestations and representations to the Chief Minister of Tamil Nadu and higher authorities of Medical & Public Health officers in Tamil Nadu, my representation was accepted by Chief Minister of Tamil Nadu and sanctioning a Genexpert Machine to Cuddalore and it was installed at the Cuddalore District TB Centre Vide ref .No./20/DHS-RNTCP/2015 and it was informed me by email from Chief Ministers special cell office, Chennai. The Joint Director of Medical and rural Health Services & FW , Cuddalore District was also informed me about the sanctioning of GENEXPERT Machine. Advocacy Training is very well helping me to achieve the challenge.
  • 9.

  • 13. FUTURE COURSE OF ACTION FOR TB CARE AND CONTROL • "Find TB”. • “Treat TB”. • ”Working together to eliminate TB." • TB is still a life-threatening problem in the World, despite the declining number of TB cases. • Anyone can get TB, and our current efforts to find and treat latent TB infection and TB disease are not sufficient. • Misdiagnosis of TB still exists and health care professionals often do not "think TB."
  • 14. TO FIND TB….. • Reach the missed cases • Appoint “ASHA’s” to detect symptomatic cases on TB as Intensive case detection campaign at Door to Door steps followed by IEC in all Rural & Urban areas as Active Search. • ASHA Should be appointed in all PHCs areas one ASHA for 1000 pop. • ASHA’s should focuses on poor, vulnerable and marginalized groups and populations with limited or no access to control services.
  • 15. • Intensive case detection campaign should be done in every 6 months once at the same areas. • I am planning to adopt a Urban slum population in Cuddalore, about 10000 pop. for screening of TB systematic cases by Active Search by involving volunteers like NSS students, TB Forum Members and NGOs etc. during October2015 on wards
  • 16. • Active Search may be planned once in every 6 months. • Lab. Investigations may be done with Co- operation of Govt. RNTCP staff. • Prior to Survey we are planned to conduct street corner play with a trained volunteers for creating awareness about TB and announcing that the survey to be conducted on the next day Morning.
  • 17. • The symptomatic cases detected through active search referred for lab. Investigation to the nearest DMC. • After diagnosing as TB we are arranged for providing DOTS through DOTS PROVIDER as DOTS (Directly Observed Treatment in Short Course) at their areas and followed them until completion of DOTS for 6 months.
  • 18. • This process will be done for three years continuously. • After three years may be declared as “NO TB AREA” • This process May be Reached the ELEMINATION STATUS at the particular ADOPTED Urban Slum Area.
