The Active Case Finding (ACF) in the provinces of Catanduanes and Camarines Sur kicked-off last Monday. 278 participants availed the services at San Andres, Catanduanes and 224 participants at Del Gallego, Camarines Sur.
Two teams from Culion Foundation, Inc. are conducting free chest Xray to target populations residing in Catanduanes and Camarines Sur. The ACF in Catanduanes is set to target a total of 3,300 individuals and will run from April 15 to 31 whereas the ACF in Camarines Sur will run from April 15 to June aiming to target 11, 100 individuals.
The Active TB Case Finding aims to deliver systematic screening by providing free x-rays and sputum tests to targeted populations which are at a higher risk of developing TB. Its ultimate goal is to identify individuals with TB to prompt initiation of treatment and provide awareness, control, and prevention activities to the community.
The ACF in the Bicol region is being carried out by Culion Foundation, Inc. in collaboration with the Department of Health Bicol Center for Health and Development, Provincial Health Offices, respective Local Government Units and Rural/City Health Units in the Region.
CFI’s TB ACF Project is being supported by PBSP and ACCESS TB Project.
