Challenge

TB burden is heavy among the poor and vulnerable with a TB prevalence of 558 per 100,000 people thus aggravating social inequalities in Kenya. With the current statistics, about 40% of the TB cases remain undetected and untreated meaning that more needs to be done to find these missing cases.

Solution

The community leaders will be identified and sensitized on TB. The leaders will select TB champions from the community who will be trained on TB screening, sample collection, referral and followup on patients on TB treatment. A network of sputum sample transportation will be established and a feedback mechanism developed to ensure adequate linkage to existing genexpert sites. Those having TB will be enrolled for treatment in the nearby facilities.

Long-Term Impact

Being a registered organization with philanthropic staff, organization seeks to put a relentless efforts aimed at kicking TB out of Kenya over the years. This will promote quality of life of the people hence economic stability
