IARC-IIHD Live Seminar: TB Care in COVID 19
#India has the highest burden of both tuberculosis (TB) and multidrug-resistant #MDR TB based on estimates reported in the Global TB Report. In the recent times when the world is tackling the #COVID19pandemic, it is important to ensure that essential health services and operations are continued to protect the lives of people with #TB and other #diseases. Therefore, #healthservices, including the #RNTCP and other relevant #stakeholders, need to be actively engaged in ensuring an effective and rapid response to #COVID-19 while ensuring that TB services are maintained.
The International Institute for Human Development jointly with the Indian Association of Respiratory Care (IARC) is pleased to announce the upcoming webinar on the following topic: "How to ensure continuity of TB care during COVID 19 crisis?" Deliberation will cover the following specific issues:
1) How national health program on TB control is ensuring service delivery, especially access to #medicines?
2) How digital technology can enhance #treatment #adherence by TB patients?
3) Considering the magnitude of the #COVID19 impact, can India still be able to eliminate TB by 2025?
