Community Health 2 (Annual Report 2009-10)
The ray of awareness
Bhawani Singh, a resident of village Padheni, is a farmer by occupation. He was known in the village to be a very hardworking and diligent person. In mid 2009, he noticed that he was not as energetic as before and was plagued by frequent cough (with expectoration) and loss of appetite, the family was at a loss as they had never seen Bhawani fall ill. On his routine visits to villages, our health worker Mr. Ashok Kumar came to know of Bhawani’s health. Realizing that the symptoms indicated TB, Bhawani was advised to get a sputum check at the local Primary Health Centre. The results were positive.
Ashok being the local DOT’s (Direct Observed Treatment Provider) provider, ensured that Bhawani took the medicines daily and monitored him closely. Seven months down the line Bhawani’s condition improved. Bhawani has now recovered fully and is back to work. His family is relieved no doubt and the villagers no longer consider TB a dreaded disease.
