volunteers Mentors/ Case Managers & Board Development Committee of the SAUC
are interacting with the community, lecturing and explaining TB symptoms, risk
factors, benefits of the test and treatment, encouraging refugees to be
voluntarily tested as a preventive and / or curative measure.
Our program besides encouraging
the Somali refugee to be voluntarily tested for TB is to educate Somali
American refugees to help themselves, properly integrate and achieve
economic and social self-sufficiency.
The Council is educating and
encouraging testing voluntarily our community for Tuberculosis – pulmonary. TB
is caused by bacteria Mycobacterium tuberculosis and usually affecting the
lungs (Pulmonary TB). The elders, children and people with weakened immune
systems are at higher risks. Tuberculosis, each year it claims of half a
million African; and the most at risk include elders, children and refugees
forced to live in overcrowded conditions. Africa has the higher incidence of TB
in the World (28%), keeping in mind that most of the Somali refugees who are in
the US come from a Nomadic society.
proper diagnosis and treatment must be translated into a culturally relevant
context. Treatment of all health issues in a culturally
relevant manner is the unmet need.
Mentors/ Caseworkers and volunteers will provide a support system that
will enable refugees to complete a treatment program without feeling culturally
isolated or getting lost in the system.
