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.

Solution

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.

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.
