A necessidade: Qual é o problema que você está tentando resolver?
The Philippines ranked ninth among the 22 high burdened countries with TB disease according to World Health Organization. This disease continues to be a major public health problem in our country since it is the sixth leading cause of mortality and accounts 7 per cent of the
total deaths. Together with Philippine government agencies and people’s organizations, Holistic Community Development and Initiatives, Incorporated, collaborated with the National Tuberculosis Program in achieving the Millennium Development Goal of reducing TB cases by half in 2015. HCDI implemented “Tuberculosis Directly Observed Treatment Short Course Therapy-Community Health Education to impact change in behavior, knowledge and practice about the disease.
A Solução: Qual é a sua solução? Seja específico!
HCDI addressed TB disease through ACSM (Advocacy Communication Social Mobilization) component of the National Tuberculosis Program using the TB DOTS-CHE strategy. Starting from the grassroots level moving to the national level through acollaborative efforts from multi-sectoral and various people’s organizations. HCDI is committed to improving the health condition of the vulnerable groups particularly in the area of TB. Delivery mechanisms are founded on four levels: individual, family, community and the nation as a whole. This involves trainings, communication, empowerment of the stakeholders and beneficiaries (identified TB patients) advocacy and awareness raising activities, home visits, and TB DOTS-CHE Volunteers as Treatment partners.
O Modelo: Demonstre através de um exemplo específico como sua solução faz a diferença; inclua suas atividades primárias
TB DOTS is government’s approach in halting the spread of Tuberculosis and HCDI added CHE Program strategy to strengthen it. HCDI designed CHE as point entry to bring transformed lives starting from an individual and moving to the family where behaviour change and empowerment are most essential; the community levels who need capacity enhancement and the nation for TB free country. CHE Program addresses all vulnerable aspects in a community, not only health issues but as well as agriculture, environment, micro enterprise and moral value teaching. The fact that development is holistic, total transformation of mankind is achieved through collaborative efforts from the different sectors and people’s organization. This innovation is undertaken with the philosophy that prevention is better than cure and with careful adherence to its core values that included the following:
• Multiplication through intensive training
• Preventive vis-à-vis curative medicine
• Community ownership of TB DOTS-CHE program
• Home visits ensures adequate case holding and optimal treatment outcome
• Program Sustainability
• Program effectiveness
• Sensitive adoption to the local needs of the community to ensure relevance and success.

História: Queremos saber mais sobre o momento de descoberta desta solução. Conte-nos um pouco a história sobre onde e quando o(s) fundador(res) vislumbrou(aram) o potencial desta solução para mudar o mundo:
The CHE Program was implemented initially in 1986 in Uganda, Africa. It is a developmental work of some faith based organizations and when it became a success, its mother organization, Medical Ambassadors International-Lifewind made a paradigm shift from conducting free health care clinics and relief work to community health education and developmental work.
The Philippine TB DOTS-CHE Program started when the Director of the Infectious Disease Office, Dr. Jaime Lagahid, saw the presentation of Cambodia CHE Program. Thus, in January 2007, TB DOTS was “married” to CHE Program to come up with TB DOTS-CHE Program. This program was piloted in Ozamiz City, Philippines, with Global Fund as funding partner through Tropical Disease Foundation,Inc. as primary partner. HCDI became the sub recipient the following year as it scales up to other areas. Currently, with Philippine Business for Social Progress as Primary Recipient, it expanded to 8 sites. It envisions of scaling up to other areas.
Descreva a meta da sua iniciativa; fale sobre o que você está tentando alcançar.
Holistic approach empowers the target communities to become self-reliant and to undertake sustainable community development program. This is achieved by providing education, social services and livelihood program through advocacy, communication, social and resource mobilization and care for TB patient at the local level. HCDI intends to impact behavioural change and increase knowledge on TB which ultimately can result to reduce occurrence, prevalence and mortality rate due to the disease. Areas considered for the program are those that have high incidence rate, low detection rate, low cure rate of TB. These are usually impoverished communities and highly populated urban slum areas and congested place near the coastal areas.
Qual foi o impacto da sua solução até hoje?
As a result, HCDI has accomplished the following goals:
Increased case detection rate
Increased cure rate
Enhanced case holding with the TB DOTS-CHE Volunteers as treatment partners once their referred TB symptomatic patients are identified as positive.
Qual é a sua expectativa de impacto para os próximos 5 anos?
In collaboration with other key stakeholders, HCDI aims to maintain and further improve the delivery of TB DOTS-CHE program at the grassroots levels thereby achieving the Philippine Millennium Development Goals of halting and reversing the incidence of TB by 2015 through the following areas:
Lower mortality rate caused by TB
Increase detection rate
Lower prevalence of TB
Increase treatment success rate
Quais são as barreiras que podem impedir o sucesso do seu projeto? Como você planeja superá-las?
Financial constraints to support our undertakings are considered to be the greatest hindrance in implementing the program. Our phase 1 program implementation funded by Global Fund in fighting against TB has ended last December 2011. We initially planned to continue its scale up to implement the program for the next three years to cover the whole province. However, during phase 2, changes have been made and the target sites were now concentrated in the areas not covered by HCDI from the 8 sites, only 1 was covered. To address this, some village leaders passed a resolution to write a letter of appeal for the continuation of the TB DOTS-CHE program in the area. It is for this reason that HCDI seeks new financial partners.

Por favor, explique de que forma o estabelecimento de parcerias é importante para o sucesso de sua inovação
HCDI have strong partnership with the Department of Health through its Rural Health Units to synchronize our efforts of combating tuberculosis. We also collaborate with the Department of Social Work and Development, Department of Education, community members, people’s group, other non government, or Faith Base organizations who share the vision with HCDI. The NTP and PBSP provided us technical partnership while Global fund as the financial partners.
Atualmente você planeja atender outros locais, mercados e populações específicas com sua inovação? Se sim, onde e por quê?
HCDI prefers to target the impoverished communities and highly populated urban slum areas and congested place near the coastal areas because these are places where are noted with high incidence rate, low detection rate, low cure rate of TB.
Que tipo de ambiente operacional e fatores da organização interna ajudarão o projeto a ser bem sucedido?
HCDI has a simple structure following a top down and bottom up management. Each position including those volunteers has well defined job descriptions. Tasks are specialized but can be delegated if situation demands for it. Detailed rules and guidelines are provided to dictate work procedures and supply parameters within which organizational members can make decisions. To improve efficiency, all HCDI staff is required to undergo the Training of Trainers I,II & III.
HCDI position itself in marketing its social services because it focuses on cost-leadership strategy where the local people themselves are trained for program ownership. Since it considers operating in a dynamic environment, use of advanced and modern technology may need to be continuously improved and updated.
