      • Finding the "Missed 3 Million" TB Cases

        Next Monday, March 24, is World TB Day, a time when the global health community focuses much-needed attention on a deadly airborne disease that is thriving in some of world’s poorest places. This year, the World Health Organization and Stop TB Partnership are calling attention to the three million people living with TB who are “missed” by health systems -- families mired in poverty, refugees, migrant workers and many others. These people don’t receive the care they need and continue to spread TB unchecked. If we’re going to get TB under control, finding these patients, treating them and curing them must be a top priority. Our latest effort through the Lilly MDR-TB Partnership aims to do precisely this with a focus on South Africa -- where cases of multidrug-resistant TB (MDR-TB) doubled between 2007 and 2012 and countless others are “missed”. With a United Way Worldwide grant made on behalf of the Eli Lilly and Company Foundation and the Lilly MDR-TB Partnership, the Donald Woods Foundation has just announced that it will be working closely with the South African government to expand its national initiative to decentralize MDR-TB treatment.

        • Youth in Zambia Pledge to Kick Tuberculosis Out of Their Community for Good

          Today is World TB Day, a day to raise awareness about tuberculosis and the status of prevention and control efforts. Children International’s Sports for Development program in Zambia has incorporated Kick TB as part of the sports curriculum. Kick TB is a non-competitive, child-focused, sports-oriented advocacy and awareness campaign that maximizes every child’s ability to be an ambassador for TB prevention and control at home, at school and in their communities. The training method was designed by the National Department of Health in South Africa. The Kick TB campaign uses soccer to convey information about the risks and prevention of TB. Soccer balls imprinted with TB information and health messages educate participants on TB and what they should do if they or their family members have any of the symptoms. Participants are also given Kick TB Health Passports that can be used to document symptoms in family members. Completed Health Passports are then turned in and reviewed by designated health professionals who can recommend and monitor treatment. The overall goal of the Kick TB program is to raise awareness, improve knowledge and increase the case detection and treatment success in areas where Kick TB is implemented. By incorporating Kick TB into the Sports for Development program in Zambia, Children International aims to help communities there beat tuberculosis for good. Check out this video to see Children International’s Kick TB program in action! And learn more about Kick TB on the Kick TB website.

              Devindra Dercie is 11 years old and lives in Mumbai with his family. Despite many hospital visits, he wasn’t diagnosed with drug-resistant TB until two years after his first symptoms. Like most young children, he had difficulty producing the sputum required for testing and had to be induced with a gastric lavage – essentially a pipe slipped down his throat into his stomach – to extract a sample. He recovered from the disease after 18 months of treatment. To learn more about TB visit, http://www.msfaccess.org/main/tuberculosis/

                  Charity Achieng is four years old and lives in Mathare, a large slum in Nairobi, Kenya. She is suspected of having TB because her mother already has the disease. To rule out active TB, she needs to cough up some sputum for testing. But Charity, like most young children, can’t cough up the sputum from deep in her chest, producing saliva instead. Here caregivers try to induce sputum from her. To learn more about TB visit, msfaccess.org/main/tuberculosis/
