Summary

This project aims to ensure that poor TB patients are provided necessary social/economic support through our continuum of care.The wide range of services will mitigate this impact,reduce disability, improve quality of lives, and prevent TB deaths. This will be accomplished through CHANGE (Counselling, Helpline, Ancillary Care, Nutrition, Generation of Income, and Education) Each TB patient who is cured will go on to lead a life free from TB. Every breath Counts. Join Hands- Save Lives- STOP TB

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

Each day 750 TB patients die in India. These deaths are unacceptable as TB is a curable disease. The challenge lies in supporting poor TB patients, to complete the 6-8 months of treatment, which can be interrupted due to social-economic problems- inability to work, loss of wages, stigma, recurring costs of investigation, poverty, marital problems, poor child care, addictions, lack of TB information and poor nutrition. Such issues compound the problem of TB in the community and for TB control.

How will this project solve this problem?

This Project adopts a multi-tier approach, which individually caters to TB patients, and helps them fight against TB. The comprehensive patient services include CHANGE, which provides Counseling support, Helpline service for patient queries, Ancillary Care, Nutritional supplements, Generation of income and livelihood programs and Educational assistance during the treatment period. These services will help patient and their families by empowering them in the fight against TB and to get cured.

Potential Long Term Impact

The comprehensive services which will be provided on individual assessment of TB patients will enable them to successfully complete their TB treatment. Thus a patient will go on to live a TB free life and become a useful member in the society, by carrying on with their roles and responsibilities. The project will also strengthen the TB control program by ensuring better treatment completion, reduce the airborne spread of TB, prevent TB related deaths thereby contributing to healthier society. .
