Improving the health of the population in Romania by increasing TB control

Project financed by the Norwegian Grants 2009 - 2014, within the RO 19 - Public Health Initiative.

A training session dedicated to nurses and community mediators took place in Bucharest on 2 and 3 October. The course was structured in two parts, one for TB experts and the other for community nurses in charge with detecting TB cases, providing directly observed treatment (DOT) and with the proper functioning, at local level, of the TB specialists and nurses team.

The course was addressed to the county teams made of one TB professional (doctor) and a community nurse. 12 people attended the training (6 TB experts and 6 community nurses) in the 6 counties where activities under the Work Package 7 will be implemented: Botosani, Neamt, Gorj, Dolj, Calarasi and Giurgiu.

The participants trained will organize similar training sessions in their counties of origin, where they will teach community nurses and health mediators about Tuberculosis (screening, treatment, DOT, social incentives for DOT patients). The teams will be responsible for organizing information-education-communication (IEC) caravans, with the support of local authorities and the community nurses and mediators they will train.
All 6 training sessions will be organised in the counties, by the end of this year.
