Please tell us how your organization will contribute to the Global Plan to Stop TB by briefly describing its involvement in any of the areas of work listed below:

TB Care Delivery:
Zambia Tuberculosis and Leprosy Trust is a non profit and non governmental organisation in the health sector whose aim is to supplement government efforts in the fight against TB, HIV/AIDS and Leprosy. In its strange to improve TB diagnosis and treatment it adopted the WHO strategy the "DOTS Expansion and Enhancement. To achieve this strategy it carries out case finding in the community by tracing TB contacts, defaulters and reffering all TB suspects found to the nearest health centres for a sputum test. Our treined TB Treatment Supporters transport sputum samples from treatment centres to diagnostic centres and take results back to treatment centres for diagnosed TB patients to be put on treatment. This way TB suspects get encouraged to come to health centres near their homes because they do not need to travel long distances to diagnostic centres themselves. Our TB Treatment Supporters visit patients in their homes to make sure that they take their medications daily and also give them psychosoial support including spiritual support.We give health education to family members of TB patients including the issues of stigma and discrimination. We also mobilise and sensitise communities on the basic facts about TB and its relation to HIV.

Declaration

Declaration of interests:
I declare that the information I have given is true according to my knowledge. But where it says are you a member of the stop TB Partnership it is written Afhaganstan. It should be Zambia but I failed to erase it since in the selection there is no Zambia. I do not know what it means.
