The methodical manual for the prevention of tuberculosis already performs its functions

The Directorate of the International Institute of HIV / AIDS and Tuberculosis sincerely congratulates all personnel of the Armed Forces of Ukraine and the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine on the Day of Defender of Ukraine. We are grateful for your dignity and patriotism, public activity and dedication and love for Ukraine.

Taking this opportunity we would like to inform you that the first copy of manual on the prevention of tuberculosis has already been received by the personnel of two military mobile hospitals performing tasks in the area of the United forces operation.

The booklet provides brief information abought healthy individuals avoid infection with a TB agent and briefly describes the current presentation of tuberculosis epidemiology. This information will be useful for patients and their relatives and staff conducting controlled outpatient treatment.

The state of awareness of the Ukrainian population about HIV / AIDS

Dissemination of information and raising public awareness about infectious diseases is one of the most important issues in counteracting its spread. On the website of the Public Health Center of the Ministry of Health of Ukraine was published the results of an all-Ukrainian study conducted by GFK Ukraine, a sociological company commissioned by Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH, to assess the knowledge, attitudes and behavioral settings of the population of Ukraine about HIV / AIDS.

Special attention was paid to two focal regions: Dnipropetrovsk and Zaporozhye, as well as age categories from 15 to 24 years. And 2260 interviews were conducted.

According to the results of the study, in 2017, the number of people who have never passed the HIV test fell considerably: 58% of the population of Ukraine, compared with 64% in 2016. Also, in 2017, the number of people who passed the family doctor test (from 5% in 2016 to 10% in 2017 among the Ukrainian population).

At the same time, only 50% of the Ukrainian population would have shown an initiative and offered a new partner to use a condom (the share of such decreased, compared with 57% in 2016).

New methods of tuberculosis prevention

The issue of combating tuberculosis, among the personnel of the Armed Forces of Ukraine and among the civilian population, is one of the priority areas of state policy in the sphere of health and social development and, moreover, is the subject of international obligations. The effective control of TB infection requires a significant revision of the organization of anti-TB care in order to reduce the burden of infection in society and create safe conditions for the treatment of patients and the work of medical personnel.

It was for this purpose that the director of the International NGO "International Institute of HIV / AIDS and Tuberculosis" Eliot J. Pearlman introduced a methodological manual in the form of a workbook for medical personnel with a short algorithm of action in case of fixation in a patient's hospital with similar symptoms.

The first part (100 copies) within 10 days will be sent to the military mobile hospital performing tasks in the area of the United Nations.

Dissemination of information to combat the spread of infectious diseases continues

In the 10th regional sanitary and epidemiological departments, the sanitary and educational work among the military units continues. The officers of the epidemiological department distribute information posters and postcards for information on diseases such as tuberculosis, HIV infection, hepatitis B and C.

Also, for the greater interest and ease of perception of information about sexually transmitted infections, with the assistance of the International NGO "International Institute of HIV / AIDS and Tuberculosis" was developed and published  information cards. Now these information cards are distributed among the personnel.

Thus, the leadership of the 1004th separate battalion of guard and servicing of the Land Forces Command of the Armed Forces of Ukraine conducted classes on sexually transmitted infections. The work was carried out using materials provided by the Institute, and after training among the staff was distributed personal protective equipment - condoms.
