NIKSHAY: Challenges during COVID pandemic and way forward
Keywords:NIKSHAY, Tuberculosis, COVID 19
NIKSHAY provides the data regarding the total number of registered cases, treatment provided and their adherence tracking in both public and private sectors. The astounding impact of COVID is the decline in notification of tuberculosis cases. The situation was worsened by the changes in health seeking behaviour of the patients, diversion of resources all over the country. Bidirectional screening for TB-COVID, doorstep delivery of services, enhanced active and passive case-finding efforts were implemented to improve this massive deterioration.
