Although RNTCP; National TB Control Programme is active here with its limited Govt. infrastructure and approved methodology, yet a considerable number of TB patients are left-out in the communities, causing the spread of this infectious disease. Gramin Samaj Kalyan Vikas Manch, under its TB Reach project implementing an ‘INNOVATIVE METHOD’ through the STOP TB Partnership Programme , which will supplement the work of RNTCP to reach to more numbers of TB patients in comparison to recent past years. Since GSKVM is one of the partners of STOP TB Partnership Programme of TB Reach of WHO, we have been selected to implement this innovative method.

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 Care Delivery:
There are several reasons for low case detection rates and delayed initiatives of treatment interventions. e.g. a)poor understanding of TB and its symptom in general population. 2)Insufficient about knowledge where to seek care. 3)Weak health Service system. 4)Barrier to access. 5)Poor diagnosed quality. 6)Limited HR for health. 7)Lack of TB Knowledge among health care provider etc.
The victims are often unaware of the fact that they have contacted the disease and that they can get cured if they take medical advice at the initial stage. Although a few patients are identified by DOTs program by the Government health workers and NGO social-workers and are taken to the government health facilities for treatment .But they often discontinue treatment midway because they do not have the idea that TB cannot be cured without a sustained treatment spanning 5 to 6 months or more. Financial constraints also play a major role here. Due to the tough geographical nature of the area, following up those cases are difficult. In this section Advocacy,communication and Social mobilization play an important role for DOTS Expansion and enhancement.

New Diagnostics:
Our target group people are comfortable in their own areas in jungle. They don’t prefer to go to the town based hospitals or even to the nearby PHCs for treatment of any kind of illness. In most of the cases they believe in witch-crafts and other superstitions. It is seen in many cases that tribal patients living in remote forest area suffering from cough for a prolonged duration with fever, breathlessness, chest pain, blood in sputum etc are taken to local ‘Ojhas’(Witchdoctors ) for witch crafting.We are providing Incentive to our Govt.Link Volunteer lacally called SAHIYA. The impact of new and improved diagnostics on TB detection rate, access to treatment, patient bene?t,cost-effectiveness, equity and poverty (including mathematical modelling studies).

Research:
The inhabitants of the area are mostly tribal people and are socially excluded from the main stream. Socio-economically most of the populations belong to backward communities. There are some tribes who are of semi-nomadic type, living in the fringe of forests and basically collect forest products to earn their livelihood. Literacy among the tribal population is very low. In most of the cases they live in small thatched mud huts without proper ventilation. The level of sanitation is wretched. The nutrition level of the community people is low. The women and the children are the worst suffers. The overall profile of community health is pitiable. Our target population is those indigenous people, who are backward in almost all aspects of life. We have a good number of seasonal migrants with new smear TB suspects. They are highly prone to succumbing to any kind of infectious disease. Most of them are addicted to tobacco, country spirit (hooch) .Most of them suffer from poor health, malnutrition and other problems. In many cases some of them become seasonally migrants in search livelihood, and get infected with HIV or by TB and when they return home, they infect others.Operational research studies will have been carried out to evaluate how to optimally deliver diagnostic services in routine TB programmatic settings, and to estimate related costs and other resources.
