The Trust is planning to build a laboratory to provide rapid results for tuberculosis suspects and people living with HIV/AIDS in a Zambian slum and decongest the only small public laboratory

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

The Community Clinic has 300 tuberculosis and HIV/AIDS patients who need to have their regular blood counts, liver tests and other tests done on time but go to other laboratories where results take 2 weeks or more to come because the community clinic has no laboratory. Patients want a laboratory.

How will this project solve this problem?

We operate a community clinic that serves tuberculosis, HIV/AIDS and malaria patients, we give them medicines, send blood and sputum specimens to other laboratories and collect results. If we build a laboratory delayed diagnosis and treatment will be minimised.

Potential Long Term Impact

The project will serve 1,000 slum people allowing them to access diagnosis and treatment timely. This will reduce pain, discrimination and death related to Tuberculosis, HIV/AIDS and Malaria.
