Challenge

Tuberculosis (TB), is a 2500 yrs old disease. A patient has to undergo 6 months treatment as intermediate course whereas it increases as per the severity of illness. The treatment is quite costly and is being provided by the government as RNTCP Scheme throughout country. While undergoing treatment, patient is unable to earn his daily living. he requires a healthy diet to fight the bacteria and face the medicine side effects. lack of money leads the patient to deteriorating health and then death

Solution

The project will be able to provide nutritious diet to TB patients during treatment. The high power drugs are applied over them which leads to multiple side effects over the patients. These effects lead them to either avoid treatment or to suicide at times. Through this project donors will provide them healthy diet costing from 10 to 2000$ which could provide the strength to fight the bacteria and drug side effects also. The patient & family could be able to survive and be back in society again.

Long-Term Impact

The beneficiaries that survive through the support of this project, will thank the people when they are survived and are back into their normal social life. At present the nutrition support for the poor TB patient is an urgent as 4 out of 100 patients are bound to die. 2.2 million death reported in 2015 but nobody is recognizing this at this point of time. Once they are relieved of this problem and the number of TB survivors would increase, authorities would also realize importance of nutrition.
