Organization Description:
Equitable, sustainable development that is inclusive of all segments of the society, with special focus on the vulnerable sub-populations
To work with development partners and stakeholders to improve the well-being of the vulnerable, socially and economically excluded populations and hard-to-reach, under-served sub-populations groups, including the adolescents and youth, women and children, the poor and deprived, persons with disability, and rural dwellers.

Evidence has shown that the poor, women and rural dwellers do not have sufficient access to TB and TB/ HIV services under the conventional passive case finding strategies used in National TB Program. So, CDRH uses innovative approaches that apply intensified case finding for TB among under-served, at-risk-populations.

CDRH is the implementing partner of the Ebonyi/ CDRH TBREACH Wave 3 project currently ongoing in Ebonyi State, while Ebonyi State TBL Programme is the principal recipient and coordinator.

CDRH also carries out TB/HIV activities in other communities.

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:
CDRH trains general health care workers on TB DOTS using the Nigerian NTP training guide. In liaison with the State TB and Leprosy Control Programmes, new TB DOTS clinics are activated and the trained general health workers posted to the newly activated sites.

Under the TBREACH project we are implementing in Ebonyi State, we also did renovation of buildings for the new TB DOTS clinics.

The capacity building and the renovation activities were preceded by advocacy visits to and sensitization meetings with the policymakers, heads of health facilities, community leaders, among other activities.

Social mobilization was also carried out through community sensitization using community-based organizations.

CDRH trains general health workers on TB-HIV collaborative activities. CDRH carries out continuous capacity building of health care staff implementing TB-HIV activities through supportive supervision and onsite mentoring visits.

We implement intensified case finding among persons living with HIV (PLHIV) attending HIV clinics in Ebonyi State. This is aimed at reducing the burden of TB among PLHIV.

We also promote screening of TB suspects and patients for HIV. HIV positive cases are referred to the HIV clinic for care and treatment. The aim is to reduce the burden of HIV among TB suspects and patients.

We engage in operations research at both community level and health facility level. In the TBREACH project, we are carrying out research to explore the factors influencing women's access to TB diagnostic and treatment services.


Declaration of interests:
There is no known conflict of interest of any scale, to the best of our understanding.
