Tuberculosis (T.B.) Control Program in Amethi district:

Tuberculosis control program was piloted by Save A Mother Foundation ( SAM) in 5 blocks of Amethi district from April 2012 to December 2013.

With some modification of the strategy, SAM expanded the T.B. control program to the remaining blocks of Amethi district from January 2015. SAM has a dedicated staff for community mobilisation, capacity building, training, convergence and coordination with Govt. health department. SAM uses its experience of Effective Social Persuasion (ESP) to actively seek TB patients from the community and send then for sputum tests. SAM field facilitators counsel the T.B. positive case to start the treatment at the earliest and follow them during treatment to ensure complete treatment.

T.B. control program implementation strategy:

  1. Community Mobilisation.
  2. Strengthening Change Agents called, Swasthya Sakhi, to cater the entire village population and identify potential T.B. patients.
  3. Capacity building of stake holders including Health activists, Swasthya Sakhi, Arogya Sakhi, and public health workers.
  4. Individual counselling of suspected and confirmed TB patients
  5. Convergence and coordination with Government and other NGOs.
