Educate-Empower-Eradicate MDR TB

An Advocacy to help stop Multi-Drug Resistant Tuberculosis for the patients of Bulacan Medical

Completed




Check Rotary’s six Areas of Focus


Detailed description

The Bulacan Medical Hospital caters to 80++ patients who fights for their lives to survive the treatment. Although Tuberculosis is treatable, the bacteria that cause tuberculosis (TB) can develop resistance to the antimicrobial drugs used to cure the disease. Multidrug-resistant TB (MDR-TB) is TB that does not respond to at least isoniazid and rifampicin, the 2 most powerful anti-TB drugs. it is becoming increasingly difficult to treat MDR-TB. Treatment options are limited and expensive, recommended medicines are not always available, and patients experience many adverse effects from the drugs. In some cases even more severe drug-resistant TB may develop. As the poverty level is high in provinces such as Bulacan, these patients loose hope in treatment. The team doctors and nurses give hope by engaging in a program to be able to assist patients to continue with the medication, provide healthy food, vitamins and supplements and give them cheer by organising key events such as assemblies.
