Please tell us how your organization is contributing to your country's national TB control plan:
Arunodaya Trust ensures Good quality diagnosis. Good quality microscopy allows health workers to see the tubercle bacilli and is essential to identify the infectious patients who need treatment the most.
Good quality drugs. An uninterrupted supply of good quality anti-TB drugs must be available. In the RNTCP, a box of medications for the entire treatment is earmarked for every patient registered, ensuring the availability of the full course of treatment the moment the patient is initiated on treatment. Hence in DOTS, the treatment can never interrupt for lack of medicine.
Supervised treatment to ensure the right treatment, given in the right way. The RNTCP uses the best anti-TB medications available. But unless treatment is made convenient for patients, it will fail. This is why the heart of the DOTS programme is "directly observed treatment" in which a health worker, or another trained person who is not a family member, watches as the patient swallows the anti-TB medicines in their presence.
Systematic monitoring and accountability. The programme is accountable for the outcome of every patient treated. This is done using standard recording and reporting system, and the technique of ‘cohort analysis’. The cure rate and other key indicators are monitored at every level of the health system, and if any area is not meeting expectations, supervision is intensified. The RNTCP shifts the responsibility for cure from the patient to the health system.

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:
World TB Day, on March 24th each year, commemorates the day in 1882 when Dr Robert Koch announced that he had discovered the causative agent of tuberculosis, Mycobacterium tuberculosis. It is a day on which the eyes of the public are focused on TB, and ECDC engages in activities aimed to increase the awareness around TB. Each year we have a different theme for our concerted activities and these are produced in the format of a TB Spotlight. Arunodaya Trust has been involved in DOTS services for the 100 families it has been working with and creating an enabling environment.

TB-HIV:
Arunodaya Trust is working with 100 families infected by HIV When TB is diagnosed in a patient receiving ART, the patient’s ARV regimen should be assessed with particular attention to potential pharmacokinetic interactions with rifamycins. The patient’s regimen may need to be modified to permit use of the optimal TB treatment regimen. thus ensure proper treatment.
