DELEK HOSPITAL LAUNCHES TO MINIMIZE TB IN TIBETAN CHIDREN


To encounter the widespread disease of Tuberculosis (TB) in the exile community from a grass root level and ensuring the safety of the future generations, the Tibetan Delek Hospital, in association with John Hopkins University, launched a new project titled, “ZERO TB IN TIBETAN KIDS: Training to End TB Now’.

So a team of Dr. Kunchok Dorjee, coordinator of the Zero TB program accompanied by four nurses from Delek Hospital visited our school and through his presentation, highlighted an alarming information regarding the higher average of TB patient in the exile Tibetan community than that of India.

The procedure includes the case finding of the disease in the family and in case of doubt they are advised to go for further proper tests. If a person is found with the bacteria the precautionary steps were taken to prevent it from spreading.

The whole school underwent the procedure and fortunately not a single serious case was diagnosed. Thanks to the whole team of Delek Hospital for initiating such huge steps in eliminating the TB disease from the community. We wish them all the best of luck in achieving their mission soon in the near future.
