ZERO T.B. PROGRAMME ( 18th March – 25th March, 2019 )

A week long Zero T.B. programme was conducted in our school from 18th March to 25th March. On the first day during the morning assembly Dr. Kunchok Dorjee La and Dr. Sonam Topgyal La brought awareness among the students and the staff about Latent TB and Active TB. Under this program, the school children and the staff were screened- they were screened for TB symptoms such as cough, fever and night sweats, and were interviewed about TB exposure history.  Children and staff were given tuberculin skin testing to diagnose TB infection by measuring immune response. Those who showed TB symptoms were further diagnosed by sending them to get an x-ray  and laboratory testing done. This program was initiated  by the team of doctors and nurses from Delek Hospital, Dharamsala. The aim of this program is to eliminate TB disease in the school.
