MANGALDAI, March 14 - As part of its efforts to sensitise private pharmacists about the menace of tuberculosis (TB), REACH (Resource Group for Education and Advocacy for Community Health) in partnership with the State TB Cell (STC), Assam, recently organised an �Orientation and Training Workshop for Private Pharmacists� here to enable them to strengthen private sector engagement towards TB elimination in the State.

The workshop was attended by around 70 pharmacists of Darrang district. The workshop discussed the role of the pharmacists who are considered to be the first point of contact for a person with minor cough and fever.

Private pharmacists tend to be members of the local community, familiar with residents, available for long hours and easily accessible.

Therefore, engaging local pharmacies to reach out to the community and increase the overall notification of TB cases is crucial. This was informed in a delayed press statement issued by REACH, Guwahati, which was received here on Sunday.

Further, the workshop was also attended by a host of prominent persons, including the MLA of Mangaldai constituency Gurujyoti Das, Additional Deputy Commissioner Pankaj Chakravorty, Joint Director of Health Services, Darrang district, Dr R Nunisa, besides a number of officials of the State TB Cell along with the State Coordinator of REACH Arup Jyoti Kalita, among others, the statement added.
