November - December 2018: TB Active Case Finding

As part of the relentless efforts to eradicate Tuberculosis in the Philippines, Team Venus exerts all its efforts to identify TB presumptive individuals and submit themselves for sputum examination,  identify a treatment partner to ensure proper treatment and monitoring. Barangay Venus has a treatment success rate of 100% and reached its target case detection above the national target of 85% for two consecutive years.  The team does not stop despite the accomplishments made in collaboration with the health care personnel in Sergio Osmeña.  Proper education and increasing awareness to tuberculosis is the key in eradicating the disease and putting a stop to the stigma, and preventing further infections.

The team adopted a TB case finding, which was an innovation made by the previous medical students assigned in Sergio Osmeña to aid the health workers in active case finding activities, especially in hard to reach areas in the community.
