DOH, USAID, Pateros kick off local National Lung Month Celebration
Our goal is to help the government ensure continuous provision of TB treatment and services in communities amid this COVID-19 pandemic.Dr. Yolanda Oliveros, Acting Chief, USAID/Philippines Office of Health
USAID will support Pateros to train healthcare workers on infection prevention and control, both for TB and COVID-19, community TB screening, contact tracing, and strengthening the municipality’s TB program as they integrate TB elimination efforts with its COVID-19 response. The partnership is conducting a systematic screening and clinical evaluation of persons who are at high risk of developing TB, such as people who are contacts of people diagnosed with TB.
