Contribution

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-HIV:
We are implementing a programme on HIV/AID among Migrants which is aimed to enhance the livelihood options and psychosocial status of the infected and affected people with HIV/AIDS, strengthening the safety networks for the migrants to prevent spread of HIV/AIDS, and also promoting an enabling environment for the PLHA and Migrants at Risk to increasingly exercise their asserted rights.

The project focused on migrants and PLHA who were working at Powerlooms, Hosiery Company, constructions workers, etc. These selected migrants and PLHA do not have conducive atmosphere to live. Majority of them suffer from the opportunistic infection. The income too is not sufficient and they lack proper health facilities. About 1500 people are being covered under this programme and are created awareness among the HIV/AIDS patients about the OI infections and sensitize that TB disease can be prevented and cured, even in people with HIV infection.
