Support Archana for therapy of drug-susceptible disease
Archana, a 10-year-old child was admitted at St John Hospital Bangalore with a complicated TB infection along with non-TB mycobacterial infection.
Two years ago, Archana’s parents noticed that she is losing weight and becoming weak. What was supposed to be a simple check-up at a local clinic led to the discovery that there was something seriously wrong with their daughter’s health. The doctors had said she needed urgent and frequent care, and since then these parents have been running from doctor to doctor, hospital to hospital, trying to get their daughter the best care they could afford. But their worst nightmare came true when the child is diagnosed with TB infection with a non-TB mycobacterial infection. She needs to undergo regular therapy of drug-susceptible disease, Macrolide drugs such as azithromycin and clarithromycin. These cost around INR. 1,50,000 as per the estimate from St. John Hospital, Bangalore.
Archana also has an underlying congenital heart disease. She lost her father a few years ago and recently lost her sibling also due to TB. She is now a single parent-child, and as there is no breadwinner for the family, the grandfather is taking care of family. Her present admission is expected to be prolonged and the family has severe financial constraints. According to our assessment, this patient family belongs to low socioeconomic status and they can’t bear the expenses of the treatment.
