The project will focus on the Kondoa district (Dodoma Region), in 26 selected villages, with the aim of strengthening the local health system, improving accessibility and quality of care for TB and HIV. Fundamental pillars of the project are therefore: 1) the strengthening of basic health facilities in terms of infrastructure, equipment and training of social and health personnel; 2) the enhancement of the figure of community health workers (CHWs) through the conduct of specific courses and material support for the conduct of activities (purchase of mobile phones/ tablets and bicycles). The project will also cross-cuttingly include the implementation of activities to foster synergy between TB/HIV programs and operational research activities with a specific focus on paediatric and adolescent age (0-14). The direct beneficiaries of the project will therefore be basic health facilities, social and health workers and CHWs and the 115.050 inhabitants of the 26 selected villages. The planned activities will take place within 24 months. The strengthening of healthcare facilities includes the purchase of 15 standard microscopes and other diagnostic supplies to improve the diagnosis of tuberculosis and the identification of pharmacological resistance to treatment (MDR), and the purchase of a Gene Expert device and related supplies. Detection rate still seems to be an area where considerable improvement is possible given the gap between the cases actually diagnosed and the estimates of cases present in the territory. Another strength will be the training and involvement of 104 CHWs, who will be encouraged to actively participate in the promotion of initiatives for the identification and treatment of TB cases, to promote the therapeutic adherence of positive TB patients in following the correct intake of therapy, to facilitate the integration of national TB/HIV programs in their respective villages and to provide adequate information on the rights of the population to access health facilities. The overall aim of the project is to reduce the burden of diseases for TB and HIV in target populations by broadening the scope of local control programmes. read more close
