Organization Description:
The TB/HIV Collaborative Initiative Project was registered on 12th November 2008 and is based in Kabushi Compound 50m away from Kabushi clinic at Kabushi Council offices. The Registration number is ORS/102/27/575. The TB/HIV activities started in mid November 2008. In January 2009, the Copper belt Health Education Project supported us by training fifteen (15) Community Volunteers comprising of two (2) Pastors, two (2) Field Officers and eleven (11) Community Volunteers and the Project Coordinator. The Project Coordinator intensified capacity building in TB and HIV management and the linkage between the TB and HIV/AIDS which was not fully understood. After that, three Community Volunteers with good counseling skills as well as commitment were identified and were engaged to do counseling of TB/HIV/AIDS suspects as well as the community at large. Those with sputum positive result are referred to Kabushi clinic to start TB treatment and for those found negative, they are referred to Ndola Central hospital to be seen by the doctors who then determine whether to start them on TB treatment or not.
We also started collaborating with the Tropical Diseases Research Center (TDRC) for sputum culture and sensitivity for the negative TB results to determine whether they are positive to TB or not. TDRC have given us a slot for mondays and wenesdays every week. Once the TB results are out whether positive or negative patients are counseled to have their HIV status known immediately. Those that are found positive are referred to Lubuto clinic for Pre –ART care services as Kabushi is not an ART center yet. We have sent our Project Proposal to Zambia Prevention Care and Treatment (ZPCT) A USAID Project and held discussions with a view to commencing ART services at Kabushi clinic which they have in cooperated in their extended five year programme and Kabushi is ear-marked for ART services for 2010. We also liaise with the Kabushi clinic to avail us those patie
