Mao Jingna

Head Nurse, Heilongjiang Infectious Disease Hospital, Harbin (China)

Ms Mao attended the ICN TB/MDR-TB training in 2014. After the training, she realized that healthcare workers are at high risk of developing TB, and the health for healthcare workers is imperative. In 2014, a total of five medical staff suffered from TB in her hospital. To prevent TB spread to healthcare workers, she developed a TB Prevention and Control Strategy for her hospital and submitted to the hospital executive team in August 2014. The TB Prevention Strategy requires TB healthcare providers to wear N95 respirators and this strategy was approved by her hospital. The successful implementation of the TB Prevention and Control Strategy greatly reduced the incidence of TB infection among medical personnel and there was only one case of TB among the staff in her hospital in 2015.

Ntombizotwa Windy Makhozonke

Registered Nurse Midwife Scott Hospital, Morija, Maseru (Lesotho)

Ntombizotwa is passionate about providing the best care to patients and making positive changes to her practice. After the ICN training she trained nurses, medical staff, cleaners, nursing students, drivers, kitchen staff and others. Ms Makhozonke’s main goal was to teach them about the pathophysiology of TB, universal precautions and proper use of personal protective equipment like N95 respirators and surgical masks, because staff members (medical and non- medical) and nursing students did not use N95 respirators appropriately or at all. After her training on infection control, staff now wear N95 respirators appropriately and coughing patients and those with TB are asked to wear surgical masks. As a result, more nurses feel confident to work with TB patients than before.

Jojo Mulenga Moyo

Registered Nurse /TB Focal person, University Teaching Hospital, Lusaka, Zambia

After attending the ICN TB/MDR-TB project training in 2016, Mr Jojo Moyo initiated several trainings and projects in his hospital and elsewhere.

Jojo identified a gap in the practice of sputum collection at his hospital where sputum was being collected in the wards. After the training, he worked with hospital management to have two sputum collection shelters constructed outside. After the shelters were constructed he organized a two-day training programme with his colleagues to train nurses and staff on how to properly assist patients in submitting a quality sputum sample.

Malawi sets ambitious TB target

“For a number of years, Malawi has been implementing the Directly Observed Treatment Short (Dots) course, endorsed by the World Health Organisation (WHO), which is the recommended strategy for TB control.
But Malawi needs to further expand TB interventions as the disease is still a major health concern for the nation and other developing countries because of its apparent link to HIV/Aids, says WHO Global TB Programme director Mario Raviglione.”
