Tuberculosis counselling

Tuberculosis is a contagious disease. It is an infectious disease that often begins with uncharacteristic symptoms (cough, fatigue, mild fever, etc.), which mainly affects the lungs, but can also affect other organs.

In order to prevent spread in the body and prevent the infection of other persons, early detection and the onset of drug treatment are important.

Treatment is long and consistent, otherwise there may be a recurrence of the disease, the ineffectiveness of antibiotics (so-called resistance development) and further cases of disease through contagion.

Tuberculosis Counselling Tasks:

  • Identification and investigation of contact persons with tuberculosis sufferers
  • Accompaniment and monitoring of outpatient antituberculous therapy
  • may be the implementation of therapy and ensuring that it is
  • further follow-up checks after the end of therapy
