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:
DAPP Zambia has during 2017 been training families to deliver Direct Observed Therapy to the patient on treatment. Community Health Workers follow up that the patient attend to the following health check up, until he/she is declared cured. This work continues during 2018.

Community Health Workers in DAPP Zambia's programs: TCE, ZAMFAM and TIMS test all TB presumptive for HIV, and screen all HIV positives for TB. Then if screening positive The CHW refers them for testing in a public health facility. Thereafter the CHW follows up that those HIV positive succeed to enroll and take treatment for AIDS. This work continues during 2018. TB and HIV awareness is given and people make own risk management plan to prevent these epidemics. Groups are formed to discuss gender norms and gender based violence, to stop this from happening. This will then reduce number of marital rapes as well as other violence and increase prevention of HIV and TB.

Laboratory Strengthening:
DAPP Zambia has during 2017 contributed stipends for extra hours for lab technicians to be able to conduct the work created by the TIMS project.
