Tuberculosis

All clients who visit Ndlovu Medical Centre are screened by means of a questionnaire for Tuberculosis and if the questionnaire shows clinical signs then further diagnosis work can be done in-house; sputum lab tests, X-rat, etc. Through early detection and referral for treatment, Ndlovu Medical Centre as a health care provider involved in primary health care is a frontline supplier of care to patients and can contribute significantly to reducing the burden of TB. This role is particularly important since a delay in detecting infectious TB patients presents a threat to the surrounding community.
