Treatment of TB Patients
Symptomatic TB Patients lead a life of complete discomfort till they are diagnosed and treated. The disease being infectious spreads to other family members. Zarifan was one such patient who was admitted in the TB Hospital on 8th April 2009, stayed in the hospital for 33 days, and discharged on 11th May 2009.
Zarifan was provided with nutritious diet while in the hospital and was administered Anti TB drugs and supportive therapy drugs. After discharge from the hospital, treatment of Zafrina continued as an outpatient on the lines of Revised National Tuberculosis Control Program for next 6 months.
The patients get fully cured of TB. They participate in general education and awareness campaign so as to control the spread of TB. Zarifan was fully cured on 4th October 2009.
