Contribution

Please tell us how your organization will contribute to the Global Plan to Stop TB by briefly describing its involvement in any of the areas of work listed below:

TB Care Delivery:
Bangladesh needs to work more rigorously to control tuberculosis (TB) as the infectious disease has staged a 'frightening' comeback, making it the country's major public health concern. Bangladesh ranks sixth among 22 high-burden countries, with an estimated 70000 TB-related deaths occurring a year, while more than 300,000 being identified as new cases. The World Health Organization, which declared TB as a global emergency in 1993, says 50 per cent of Bangladesh's adult population is infected by TB bacilli. Between July 2006 and June 2007, official figures say, a total of 102,785 new smear-positive cases were detected.


Planned activities:
1. We should include radio service, school students and religious leaders in the anti-tuberculosis campaign with simple and catchy communication terms to reach the large segment of the mass people.
2. We will be work in a more consolidated and concerted way to fight the scourge of TB.
3. More interaction will be made among all the stakeholders to ensure health service to the commoners.
4. Network building with urban DOTS involving NGOs, medical colleges, private practitioners, prisons and corporate health sectors.
5. Awareness building with factory owners and workers.
6. Conduct assessment of the impact of knowledge and awareness of TB on the population and service recipients.
7. TB treatment facilities will be expanded to workplaces
8. Conduct rally, seminar and mass campaigns with partners and stakeholders


Research:
a huge number of patients who were suffering from tubercular ulcer in their oral cavity, tubercular granuloma, tubercular oestiomyties or single lymph node enlargement in maxillofacial region. Without any sign, symptom and hematological test co-relates with tuberculosis. I have also seen some patient suffers from tubercular meningitis without any evidence of tuberculosis except small mucosal ulcer. I found many of the patients suffering from old tubercular granuloma in their chest in routine examination of x-ray chest, only PCR and histo-pathological examination is the confirmation test. So it is urgently needed to express widely for new problems of diagnosis TB and multi-drug registrants patients who are left behind to the global tubercular network for develop a new global plan to Stop TB Partnership
