The Health care centre has had a vast increase of both staff and students with Tuberculosis. It seems that nationally the problem is on the rise.
Hence many workshops surrounding TB and Infection Control are being conducted for health care professionals.
It is important to note the classical signs and symptoms for TB:
-Cough, especially hemoptysis
-lack of appetite
-shortness of breath.
Some clients might only have one of these symptoms, others may have a combination of symptoms. It is imperative that anyone with these symptoms come to the HCC for screening and testing purposes. We supply treatment for the duration of 6 months.
