Our Mission

CATA‘s mission is to ensure that every TB and lung patient has access to effective diagnosis and treatment.

CATA has been implementing C-DOT among elderly/vulnerable groups since April 2005 and PPM-DOT in work place since February 2007. These projects are mainly supported by Japan Anti-Tuberculosis Association (JATA). In January 2009, CATA got complement support from Australian Respiratory Council (ARC) in fulfilling gap for these above mentioned projects.

With more than 8 years of experiences working on TB issues in Cambodia, 6 years for C-DOT and 4 years for PPM-DOT, CATA has learnt a lot of experiences in building bridge between institutions and organizations, building the capacity of implementing partners including community base group(village health support group “VHSG” ) and HC staff. CATA has inspired stakeholders to work in line with the national guideline. The achievement got from C-DOT in 2 HC for elderly/vulnerable groups is quite good, the number of TB suspect referred by VHSG increased from 86 in 2009 to 117 by July 2010. The TB cases found were 18 cases in 2009 and 12 cases by July 2010. With regard to TB control in factory, even facing the global financial crisis, the project is still functioning. The number of TB suspect referred to HC is 102 in 2009 and 56 by July 2010. The number of TB cases found is 10 cases in 2009 and 6 cases by July 2010.

In April 2009, with the support from Global Fund Round 7, CATA implement the C-DOT in 2 operational district (OD), one OD in Kompong Speu, another in Preah Sihanouk province, starting from 6 among 19 HC. The project takes into account the importance of community participation, the collaboration with local authority and other partners for effectively implementation. The result of one year implementation in 6 HC reflects good collaboration from all stakeholders. The number of referral case by VHSG is 296, the pulmonary TB smear positive cases and TB all form registered are respectively 185 and 432 , of them 220 are served by community DOT.
