TB LEPROSY CONTROL

Tuberculosis and leprosy constitute serious causes of high morbidity and mortality, especially in association with the HIV (Human Immunodeficiency Virus) AIDS (Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome) epidemic. The social stigma associated with these diseases further compounds the problem.

Concerning tuberculosis, Nigeria ranked 10th among the 22 high burden TB countries of the world and 1st in Africa. A total of 1, 528 TB cases were notified in Ondo State in 2012. It should be noted that TB burden is further compounded by the high prevalence in the country.

Programme Objectives

To reduce the prevalence of the TB and Leprosy to a level at which they no longer constitute public health problems.

To prevent and reduce the impairments associated with Leprosy as well as provide appropriate rehabilitation for persons affected by Leprosy.

Programme Targets

  • To detect at least 70% of the estimated infectious cases
  • To cure at least 85% of detected smear positive cases
  • By 2015 reduce TB prevalence and death rates by 50% relative to 1990 level
  • By 2050 eliminate TB as a public health problem( <=1/1,000,000 population)
