With the support of our esteem individual donors, SORAK has been able to engage with the district leadership as well as monitoring TB/HIV service delivery among community based health units. The result of this has been the Prioritization of TB/HIV activities in the district operational plan. This project tasks district policy makers and planners into targeting the improvement of TB/HIV in the district. The District and community health workers reveal that the contribution from SORAK still remain significant more especially among underserved communities. This is where health workers find it difficult to serve due to lack of basic social amenities in such localities.
Our effort with the support of GlobalGiving partners have yielded results to the extent that all the Health Centre-III, in the four project sub counties have been stocked with recently acquired laboratory equipment and staff. Communities are starting to trickle in for TB/HIV screening. SORAK will thereafter assess all found postive with TB/HIV in order to deliver home based care to needy widows and orphans.
Health workers in these units however recommended SORAK’s support for outreaches. This is because of the fact that these health facilities were still far from the majority of poor and highly stigmatized remote area resident communities.
We are therefore very grateful to our donors for the support so far provided.This has brought back to life to the once TB infected and affected souls deep down among the under served last villages.
