WORLD AIDS DAY

Today, December 1, marks the World Aids Day.

With that in mind, we appreciate the fact that most of the Aids patients stand a greater chance of co-infection if predisposed to condition for TB spread. We note, especially to the CHVs who will be attending the World Aids Day celebrations, to communicate the messages to them, especially when they speak to them at various tents in the stadium.

I had written a short message to be given to the HIV patients, on how to prevent themselves from the infection of TB.

Tb, when in the body of a patient with HIV, can easily kill the patient. It is, therefore, better to have prevention than taking medicine for too long to be cured of TB.

We have noted again that the introduction of the bicycles has increased the number of patients referred to the laboratory.

However, we have detected a worrying trend, which I informed Mr. Shikanda about. Most of the patients take too long to be served, and their results are late. It is ideal that the lab technicians be informed of their work, very strictly.

The quality of the bicycles has been praised, and it has encouraged access to many places. Over the last two months, the numbers have increased by 67 per month.

HIGH MORTALITY AMONG TB-HIV CO-INFECTED PATIENTS

In the CHV meeting today, we have learned that four patients who had both HIV and TB have passed away.
This information comes at a time when the Kenya government has released statistics for 2016 which portray a very low survival rate for patients with co-infection.

Out of the 53,000 co-infected patients discovered last year, 24,000 died in what the MoH says was as a result of late diagnosis and treatment.

In Kangemi alone, a total of nine co-infected patients have died in since 2016, a fact that confirms the high mortality rate among such patients.

It has been advised that HIV programmes and TB programmes be held together, to facilitate the speedy diagnosis and treatment, hence reduce the worrying mortality rates.

In the meeting, I have informed Mr. Shikanda, the head of the Kangemi Health centre, to address the matter, as regards HIV and TB infection. Partners working around HIV should be ready to cooperate and refer the patients for TB testing, as a measure to improve early diagnosis.
