TB Orientation for Mobile Van Team of Nayara Energy

Nayara Energy is a Platinum member of the Corporate TB Pledge (CTP). In partnership with the Government of Gujarat, Nayara Energy had started a nutrition support project for  TB patients in Devbhumi Dwarka district in  2018. To further support and contribute to National TB Elimination Program, they have expanded the nutrition support initiative to Jamnagar district too.
Other than the nutrition support projects, Nayara Energy also has a mobile medical van to provide basic health services in selected villages. As a CTP Platinum member, Nayara Energy is planning to introduce TB awareness and screening program in these villages. As an initial step towards this,  Nayara Energy with support from the CTP secretariat organized a virtual orientation session for their mobile van team on 30th July 2021. The team of 15 members comprising of doctors, lab technicians, paramedical staff, MIS officer and pharmacist attended the session.
The key topics covered during the training were:
(1) Basics of TB: types of TB, TB symptoms, diagnosis and treatment
(2) TB screening: Symptomatic screening based on classical symptoms of TB
(3) Sputum collection and transportation
(4) Patient support
(5) Government schemes
The session also entailed a discussion on the implementation aspect of the proposed community awareness and screening initiative. The Mobile van team will undertake activities for creating TB awareness and screening for identifying TB symptomatic, linking them to the nearest diagnostic facilities, and provide need-based support to patients in treatment adherence.
