||How important is community social worker for TB patients?
||Eastern Region Conference of IUAT, 15th, Lahore, Pakistan,
10-13 Dec 1987, p. 406.
TB patients do not go to the TB clinic for treatment
for fear of social boycott from their friends and relatives. Therefore,
there is a need to create community worker groups to impart health
education and create confidence among patients and the population.
Such groups, formed at one each for one hundred thousand persons,
could encourage the patients to seek treatment and assist in providing
the needed medication. Creating rehabilitation centers to help affected
families add to their earnings and fund-raising are suggested measures
to control TB.
