One thought on “Call To Action For A TB-Free India”
Morning colleagues It is good to have such guidelines and questions with answers on what TB community can do. It is very sad in that we have so much but do little to help and alleviate our tuberculosis patients. I have realised that is little or no counseling at all for the tuberculosis patients. I will just give this information that you find the laboratory phoning straight to the patient giving results instead of patient counseling first then offer treatment when the patient has understood what her/his condition is or if its said she is tuberculosis positive or mdr-tb what effects will it have.
I which let’s talk will go a long way to highlight this problem and clinicians make a better decision for eliminating tuberculosis.
