PATH intensified its TB case finding mission by using Delft’s OneStop Mobile Clinic in the highest TB burden province of Zambia: Copperbelt.
The OneStop Mobile Clinic was deployed to screen 30 TB hotspots across Copperbelt Province. Compared to the previous year’s numbers, TB notification in the province is increased by 49% after the introduction of the Mobile Clinic.
The use of the Mobile Clinic is an innovative way to identify TB case and is making a significant contribution to TB case notifications. Scaling up the use of Mobile Clinic to other provinces could help close the gap between notified TB patients and estimated incidence.
