Contact tracing of Index Drug Resistant TB patients and optimization of Xpert/MTB RIF machines are receiving great attention from the Institute of Human Virology Nigeria through home visits by community volunteers; sample shipment of presumptive TB cases among DR TB contacts; provision of renewable solar power for TB case detection; solar refrigerators for sample conservation; and administrative support for printing results to improve TB case notification and dissemination of patient’s results to health facilities.
