Help a Patient build immunity against TB

An  urgent appeal to you who are reading this post : 

TB kills !! A Drug Resistant patient spreads Drug Resistant TB !!  

This is an urgent appeal to you to help TB patients build their immunity to fight the disease and complete treatment successfully thus preventing the spread of the disease to their own family members and the community around them.

Each TB patient requires supplementary nutrition, more so for those with a low BMI .  

A tin of protein powder is ideal as it is easy to administer and can be taken by the patient itself.

The cost for each TB patient is Rs.636/- per month for a period of 6 months. This is essential to help the patient to withstand the side effects and complete treatment.

LSS would be grateful if you could cover the cost of at least one patient.  If you do YOU will be saving the lives of 10 others.

Successful use of technology in Case Detection

LSS’ pilot project to use technology in Case Detection in TB gave excellent results thanks to Dr. Saurabh Rane , a young and enterprising physiotherapist, who devotes some of his time to helping NGOs.  Dr. Rane, when he is not tending to the Indian Football Team, developed an amazing app that records details of patients suspected and diagnosed for Tuberculosis.  In the image below you see Dr. Saurabh Rane in conversation with Donna Thakur discussing the changes in the app for reports to be generated for the latest Case  Detection programme now initiated  by the RNTCP.
