Screening / diagnostic lab test and imaging
Nepal is in high risk zone for the communicable diseases like tuberculosis, HIV/AIDS, syphilis, gonorrhoea, hepatitis B, hepatitis C etc.
National Statistics have shown than 15 million people, almost half of the Nepal’s population is infected with TB. Each year 44000 new cases are detected and 5000 to 7000 people die of TB in Nepal. It is estimated that one infected person transmit 20 healthy individuals in an average. So many countries prohibit the immigrants with TB or TB suspects.
In general HIV prevalence among adult population is 0.17% in 2016. However HIV prevalence among certain population groups such as people who inject drugs, female sex workers and MSM (men sex with men) and TG (trans gender)are more than 5% due to which Nepal’s HIV epidemic is categorized as concentrated epidemic.
Many countries prohibit foreign students/ workers with infectious disease like tuberculosis, Sexually Transmitted Diseases (STD), HIV/AIDS and pulmonary scar. We are specialised in screening and diagnosis of these disease conditions with standard protocols.
Like for tuberculosis we screen and diagnose as shown in picture.
Similarly, HIV screening is done by ELISA technique and confirmatory Western Bolt test is done for ELISA positive case.
