CHO heightens training vs TB infection

Cagayan de Oro City (11 October) -- Medical Technologists from the City Health Office (CHO) have undergone a series of updating and upgrading on the prevention and treatment of Tuberculosis (TB).

Dr. Evelyn Perez, CHO officer-in-charge disclosed that the training for medical technologists is needed in order for them gain more knowledge and deliver better quality service to TB patients.

The training for medical technologists, who are responsible for checking persons afflicted with TB, is in line with the city government's effort to eradicate TB in the city

Early last year, the city together with World Vision formed a task force in order to sustain the World Vision's drive to eradicate Tuberculosis aside from funding the program until 2008.

The intensified TB campaign aims to identify and treat at least 75 percent of Tuberculosis-positive persons in the city aside from conducting monitoring and anti-TB advocacy activities in the city's pilot barangays.

The pilot barangays are Bugo, Puerto, Agusan, Tablon, Cugman, Lapasan, Macabalan, Puntod, Patag, Nazareth, Macasandig, Carmen, Iponan and Camaman-an.

Persons found positive with TB infection after a sputum examination will be given free TB medication for the entire duration of the TB treatment.

Dr. Perez is hopeful that with the expertise of the CHO personnel gained from the said training, it would be easy for them to identify people with TB infection, thus, helping the disease's eradication. (City Information Office/RAGCOM) [top]
