Mitchells Plain Community Health Centre (Completed, 2007, 2010, 2013)
This ARV clinic saw around 2670 registered patients with an increase of +/-25 new patients per month. We have an extremely high TB infection rate in our ARV patients. These patients had to go to other facilities to be treated for TB. Being that most of the clinics’ patients are unemployed or live on minimum wage, they couldn’t afford all the travelling between the clinics for their treatments and would choose not to get treated at all.
We devised a way to incorporate TB treatment into their ART services. This allowed their existing ARV patients to get TB treatment under one roof. We had to ensure that the clinic had the right environment and medical equipment to treat these patients for TB. The equipment was donated to the clinic in 2013.
