Spotlight on Delft’s OneStopTB clinic (WoW truck) in the USAID’s Annual TB Report to Congress: A Time for Urgent Action to End TB.
USAID supports KNCV to conduct active TB case finding in Nigeria, with Wellness on Wheels Mobile Diagnostic Units (WoW truck) equipped with a digital X-ray, CAD4TB and GeneXpert that are all powered by solar energy and have a backup power generator.
The report highlights:
“From April to December 2020, the WOW Units screened 28,959 people. Of these, nearly 13% were identified as having presumptive TB and nearly 15% of those individuals then tested positive for TB. Despite COVID-19’s impacts, scaling up of active case finding interventions, such as the Wellness on Wheels initiative, helped contribute to Nigeria nationally, recording a 16% increase in TB case notifications in 2020”.
