India has the highest burden of Tuberculosis (TB) globally, accounting for more than 26% of the global TB incidence in 2020 and 38% of the TB deaths among HIV negative and HIV positive people. Of the 2.6 million annual estimated incidence, more than half access diagnosis and care in the private sector. There are significant gaps across the care cascade because of diagnostic delays, irrational and non-standardized regimens and catastrophic health expenditure to patients. WJCF works to support multiple programs across the country to extend the quality of TB care to patients in both the public and the private sectors.
Differentiated TB care project focuses on reducing TB mortality in India and aims to operationalize the NTEP & NHM’s guidelines on differentiated care for TB in Ayushmann Bharat Health & Wellness centres (AB-HWCs) at the PHC & SHC level. This would include early screening, identifying severely ill patients, evaluating risk as required, and referring them to secondary/tertiary care facilities, thereby ultimately achieving timely intervention with an aim to reduce TB mortality. WJCF will be implementing the project in four geographies, namely, Srinagar (J&K), Durg (Chhattisgarh), Sikar (Rajasthan) and Muzaffarpur (Bihar), with four critical activities detailed below:
The project will help create a Standardized Operating Procedure (SOP) based on the learnings and inform the NTEP’s scale-up plans at the national, state, district, and sub-district levels.
WJCF seeks a District Lead with excellent communication and articulation skills. The ideal candidate should have a working relationship with District NTEP and the General health system staff. The District Lead will report directly to Project Lead based in Delhi and will work closely with the National-Level M&E analyst to support field level implementation of the project. We value qualities such as integrity in work, tenacity of purpose, and a strong work ethic.
