‘NEVER STOP SCREENING TO REDUCE DIAGNOSTIC DELAYS’
Campaign to promote early diagnosis of TB
Fujifilm India Pvt Ltd, a pioneer in diagnostic imaging and information systems for healthcare facilities launched the second phase of its campaign on TB “NEVER STOP: SCREENING TO REDUCE DIAGNOSTIC DELAYS”, a Mobile Screening Initiative for TB . This phase aims to increase awareness on TB as a curable disease focusing on tea sector workers, difficult to reach population in rural and urban areas including tribal population in selected districts of Gujarat, Kerala and Assam. Under the campaign, Fujifilm India has introduced mobile hand held X-ray facility along with an implementation team and community volunteers.
Through the campaign, Fujifilm aims to reach to more than 5 million people and screen around 30,000 people using the handheld X-ray machine. The proposed districts are Sonitpur, Golaghat, Jorhat, Sivasagar, Dibrugarh, Tinsukia, in Assam, Wayanad in Kerala, and Kutch district in Gujarat. Starting in September 2022, this phase is expected to conclude by August 2023.
In the first phase, Fujifilm India screened over 1 million people and shared around 8,000 X-ray reports across 27 cities including Delhi, Dadri, Dehradun, Haridwar, Haldwani, Rudrapur, Patna, Jaipur, Indore, Kolkata, Raipur, Pata and more.
In line with the Government’s call to achieve the SDG targets related to TB by 2025, five years ahead of global targets, Fujifilm India aims to raise awareness about tuberculosis as a curable disease among hard-to-reach groups, highlighting advantages of early diagnosis ultimately improving people’s quality of life. Delayed diagnosis of tuberculosis spreads the disease and it may also impact the treatment success rate. While tuberculosis is a serious illness, it is completely curable if diagnosed in time and the treatment is completed.
