File Type: PDF | File Size: 1.95 MB
The USAID Defeat TB project is a five-year project that aims to increase TB case notification, case detection and treatment outcomes through health system strengthening with the aim of ending the TB epidemic in Uganda.
One way the project is working to increase TB case notification is by use of a digital mobile chest X-ray for TB screening outreaches to increase access to X-ray services by the urban poor. The service targets high-risk populations for TB, such as contacts of TB patients, people living with HIV (PLHIV), urban slum dwellers, prisoners and refugees.
The digital X-ray machine was stationed at Kawala Health Centre (HC) III, a public health facility in Kampala City.
