Based on close collaboration between the PPAN NGO and NTC the community-based monitoring team (CBM) got an information from NTC that one of the TB patient who was on outpatient treatment had refused to take medication. NGO staff contacted with the patient and had telephone conversation. It turned out that the patient also had Dekterev disease and therefore refused to take the medication. By his complains his joints started to ache after anti-tuberculosis medication which limited his movement.
CBM team arranged to meet patient who was living with two brothers and parents. During the home visit CBM team also met the patient’s father. It turned out that the patient’s father several months ago also was diagnosed with TB, but because of his abroad work, he had refused treatment. CBM team has lost contact with the patient as he had moved to Russia.
The boy repeated his father’s behavior by refusing to take drugs and was sure that his TB status will not deteriorate his health. CBM staff did series of consultations with father and son, shared information about the worst consequences. Due to the consistent and continuous work of the team the boy has resumed treatment. His data was sent by CBM staff to Accounting Office of NTC in order to receive a monthly allowance for the TB patient at the outpatient treatment phase. For now an agreement has reached with the father in order to be re-researched and start treatment.
