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:
With respect to the stipulated 5 core componentsof the DOTS which are:
1.Government commitment (including political will at all levels, and establishment of a centralized and prioritized system of TB monitoring, recording and training).
2. Case detection by sputum smear microscopy.
3. Standardized treatment regimen directly of six to eight months observed by a healthcare worker or community health worker for at least the first two months.
4. A regular, uninterrupted drug supply.
5. A standardized recording and reporting system that allows assessment of treatment results.
We hope to contribute immensely more than before thus:

Advocacy: the sensitization outreach od the DOTS should not be limited to only the targeted groups but also to the city actors(I.e Government officials and stakeholders). Advocacy and sensitization outreach alone cannot remedy the plight, and evidenced based learning ought to take place so as to deepen the knowlegde of the city actors on the basis, needs and possible impacts of the DOTS. Having this in mind, we plan to:
A. Invite some of the targeted city actors to a predetermined venue so as to mentor them(possibly woth the help of resource person(s)) on the intricasies and permutations of the DOTS.
B. Pre-test and post test questions will be used to assess their knowledge on TB in general and the DOTS in part.
C. Lobby the city actors to identify with the DOTS program(this might even entail drafting of communique)
D. A call for adoption of the need and budgets of the DOTS into the cummulative fiscal budget of the year-year operation.

Once the targeted city actors aresensitized evidently that they begin to identify woth the DOTS prgram, it has created a room to easier implementation of the project.

2. Community sensitization on the causatives, mediums of transfer, prevention and treatment of TB:

The community at large ought to be sensitized on the signs, symptoms, infection ways/safety medium, preventions and treatment of TB.
If they are away of the possible ways one can be infected, possible symtoms and sign of an infected person, it will lessen the spread of TB thus, engendering easier treatments at early stages of infection.

Communication signs like that of the pedestrian crossing will be made available to communities in pictographic representations. This is to enable even the least educated person to decifer the code from the info-board.

Social mobilization of groups like:
*TB-CBM: TB-Community based monitors
These are a group(s) of volunteers whom are trained on simple signs and symptoms identification skills such that they will go into the communities and develop and identify persons with TB.
They may even collect sputum as sample specimen for analysis.

Its quite obvious that TB is a person with HIV is bound to be. Possibly infected with TB.

Awarenescampaigne should be engaged so as to convey the possible ways of getting infected with TB_HIV and also the limitations to the isolations of the persons diagnosed of TB_HIV. This may entails:

1. Encouraging them to have sex only with one faithful partner.

2. To Use condom if you or your partners have had sexual partners

3. To not have sex with persons who have many partners such as (male or female prostitutes) or with persons who inject illegal drugs.

4. Treat sexually transmitted diseases early.

5. Make sure instrument for circumcission, ear piercing, acupunture and traditional practices such as scarring, are boiled before use.

6. Teaching them to refuse unnecessary blood transfusion. Etc

In special cases where the infected persons are already living with the family/friends, we are posed to administer B.C.G vaccines to protect the uninfected from the infected.

Special cases when the TB had been diagnosed to be drug resistant TB, we profer immediate attention of the professional expertise that will attend to the patient.

Be it tuberclosis of the spine, skin, lymph nodes etc, we attend to the patient with the possible medical tools and seek immediate attention of a professional.
