Organization Description:
To address the needs of Orphans and Vulnerable Children (OVCs) affected by HIV and AIDs, and Tuberculosis, strengthen the capacity of caregivers economically and reduce stigma and discrimination of people living with HIV/AIDs and those on TB medication including the application of practical intervention strategies for reduction of spread of HIV and AIDs and TB.
Our main focus is advocacy for the reduction of the spread of HIV/AIDS and TB and we provide holistic care and support for Orphans and Vulnerable Children (OVCs) orphaned by the HIV/AIDS epidemic.We also provide economic empowerment to caregivers of these children so that they are able to meet the basic needs of OVCs and empower themselves and the children with skills, attitudes and mindsets necessary to address the challenges of life and threats posed by HIV/AIDS pandemic.
The organization has implemented TB programs in the areas of prevention, detection, contact tracing, defaulter tracing, referrals, and advocacy in the last four years with funds from Global Fund.
We are interested in TB work because we see first hand how people in the slums are suffering from the disease due to challenges associated with nutrition, drug adherence, stigma and discrimination, ignorance among others. We have are recorded tremendous success stories of people who have finished TB treatment and have resumed their work. We are also interested in TB work because without its integration to other health, development and livelihoods programs it will remain a huge challenge to achieve milestones in its response. Just the same way, HIV was mainstreamed into other programs and within private and public sector, TB must go the same route. Our organization is interested in engaging policy makers at the county and national level to develop policies towards the integration of TB into other health, education, development, and livelihood programs in the country.
Currently, we are implementing phase 2 of GF R 9 TB, and we have noted just how the programming approach disadvantages peopl

Please tell us how your organization is contributing to your country's national TB control plan:
The organization with the assistance of Global Fund contributes to the national TB control plan through;
1. Contact tracing of new smear positives - the organization works in collaboration with selected health facilities within two sub Districts to trace contacts of New TB patients. Once traced, the contacts are provided with health education on TB issues and thereafter the household members of the patient are all screened for possible TB symptoms. This effectively enable us identify people in the households suspected of TB. These people are then referred to the health facilities for further examination and check ups. This contributes to the prevention of the spread of TB. Early detection of TB cases has proved worthwhile in the response to the disease.
2. Defaulter Tracing - the organization works with health facilities to get names and contacts of patients who have defaulted treatment who are then traced and brought back to the facility. This has prevented the progression of TB into MDRTB as well as transmission to other populations. The facility our organization is affiliated in the TB work has been awarded as the facility that has had its patients successfully complete their treatment and our organization play a critical role in that kind of achievement.
Outreaches - the organization also conducts outreaches to educate and thereafter screen people in public places and this has enabled us refer people who show TB symptoms to facility where almost 80% of all our referrals have been turning positive.
