Tuberculosis: A global Epidemic

Leh: Every year 24th March is observed as World Tuberculosis Day, an important reminder for people everywhere about the killerdisease.ThethemeoftheworldTuberclosis Day, 2014 is ‘Reach the 3 million’ but the point is, are we reaching the 3 million? No wonder Ladakh has made a lot of progress in every field but challenges to fight against some deadly diseases like TB and HIV/ AIDS remained overlooked and neglected. There is still a very long way to go for Ladakh to rid itself of tuberculosis, a curable but deadly disease. TB cases have sparked off one of the biggest medical debates all over the world. According to the World Health Organization, 8.6 million people fell ill with tuberculosis in 2012 and 1.3 million died from it, mostly in low- and middle-income countries. Around 3 million people (equal to 1 in 3 people falling ill with TB) are currently being ‘missed’ by health systems. One of the main problems is reaching all those infected and getting these people to undergo the right treatment is a daunting task. Moreover, the social stigma attached to the disease makes many shun medical help. TB is curable, but current efforts to find, treat and cure everyone who gets ill with the disease are not sufficient. Many countries around the world are now strengthening their TB strategic plans and settingnewtargetstodrivedownthenumbers of deaths and cases of TB, while identifying priorities, best use of domestic resources,andfundinggapsforcontrolling TB. Ladakh is no exception; Leh district has five DMC (Designated Microscopy Centre) one is SNM, Hospital which has themostworkload,DiskitNubra,Khalatse, Nyoma and Tangste. NodoubtthosepatientswithTBaregetting the best treatment in Ladakh. Despite people’s access to treatment, it is shocking to learn that 170 TB cases are reported in 2013 in Ladakh. And in the year 2011, 212 TB cases were reported. In 2012, 165 TB cases were reported at DTC Leh. Though,

nodeathcaseshavebeenreportedin2013. This data shows that urgent, coordinated action is needed to fight against TB. When asked about the reason of the prevalence of this disease Dr. Mutup Dorjey, DistrictTuberclosisOfficerLehsays,“Socio economicfactorisverymuchrelatedtothis Disease. Most of the cases of TB patients are from the low income families. The diet of such patients is not good so the immune system weakens and they are vulnerable to the disease and catch up the disease quickly.” The disease is highly contagious and easily spread even by sneezing, and each TB patient can infect an average of 10 people. Overcrowdingandpoorventilationprovide the ideal environment for spreading TB, said Dr Motup. Looking to the future, population movements will increasingly contribute to a resurgence of TB. Most of the Ladakh’s population now are shifted to Leh. Today half does, and that proportion is predicted to rise in the coming future. Moreover, in winter people in Ladakh remainclosedinahousewithplasticonthe windowsandverypoorventilationtocome and go. PoonamKhetrapalSingh,theWHOdirector for Southeast Asia, says: “Drugs alone cannot beat tuberculosis in the community. The disease is a condition strongly influencedbylownutrition,poverty,social stigma, environment, rapid urbanization, and large population displacement.” 2013-14,Elevennewpatientsarediagnosed, among them 6 are from Kargil district and 6 are from Leh district. The reason for the numberofnewTBcasesisthelackofawarenessabouttheprogrammewhichhasmade the task of detecting the disease quite difficult. To mark the occasion, the District Tuberclosis Centre (DTC) has said that DOT treatment is very successful all over the world including Ladakh, who are believed to be not receiving the treatment and care they needed. Finding these missed cases is one of the priorities as World Tuberculosis Day is observed.

Kashmiri Pandits should vote for NC-Congress alliance candidates: Bhat Jammu, Apr 8 (KNS): Taking strong objections to certain Kashmiri Pandit community leaders statements ‘meant to mislead the community’, General Secretary Pradesh Congress Committee Chuni Lal Bhat has cautioned Kashmiri Pandits

“TheDOTS(directobservetreatmentshortcourse) has become a very dependable method to see to it that the TB patients do not skip their prescribed medication. Moreover, if a patient does not take the medicines as prescribed, there is the probability of the person developing TB strains that become multi-drug resistant which is even more threatening. That is to say that once TB is detected, the regime must be takenwithoutfailforthewholedurationas hasbeenprescribed,”saidJigmetSamstan, Senior Treatment Supervisor, DTC Leh. The government too is doing the needful as it has put TB prevention and control under Priority 1 programme. Since 1996, DOTS strategy has been implemented through district hospitals‚ primary health carecentres‚healthposts‚sub-healthposts andotherDOTSclinics.Thoughtheefforts are commendable to prevent and control the disease, the high number of new TB patients is alarming. ‘When a patient is diagnosed with TB first important thing is to get the HIV and sugar test’, rued Jigmet. The DOT dates are fixed as in Leh, as Monday,WednesdayandFridayanditcanvary in different places. Like in some parts it is also Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday, said Jigmet. All this shows that undetected cases are a bigproblem,becausethepatientswhohave acquired TB could pass it onto others through sputum and other medium if immediate treatment is not sought. That makes the detection of new TB cases more urgent.ProgressinthefightagainstTBhas been made, but it is essential to address the socio-economic conditions that make a TB-infectedpersonhidehisorherphysical condition from others—even the health personnel. What we needed to do is keep a healthy and hygienic lifestyle and avoid overcrowding places. To successfully battle TB, the public and private sector need to work together. For that the government needs to provide support in the form of training, quality diagnosis, quality drugs and follow-ups for patientswhomaynotbeabletoaffordthese services.

saying their votes would count in Kashmir valley parliamentary segments and it is in the interest of Pandit community not to waste their votes while voting for communal and divisive ideologies.According to a statement issued to KNS, Bhat has said that Kashmiri Pandit Community has long history of secular credentials and the KPs are the pillars of Kashmiriat and secularism. He said that the Congress led government at the centre as well as in the state has taken various important steps to redress the problems being faced by the KPs and has taken care for the welfare of the community.He said our each and every vote for alliance candidate in Kashmir valley would strengthen the integrity and unity of the state and against those forces who are working to weaken the relationship of our state with the rest of the country. Bhat again appealed to the community to vote in full strength in favour of INC-NC alliance candidates and elect them with thumping majority. (KNS)
