Drug resistant TB (DRTB) is still a major source of morbidity and mortality, in where treatment is successful in only about half of those diagnosed and started on therapy. Facing these gloomy treatment outcomes, TB patients are at a greater risk of developing mental health challenges, often suffering from depression and anxiety as they adjust to their diagnosis and adapt to living with a long-lasting complex treatment accompanied with numerous side effects.

Such is the case that was faced by *Mandla an artisanal miner in Insiza District. *Mandla was diagnosed with DRTB following an outreach exercise by Baines OHS. He was immediately put on treatment and provided with home-based palliative care support. In the traditional view of TB treatment, a patient is given almost everything they require as treatment at the beginning, namely new drugs, including better regiments, for shorter treatment periods, leaving palliative care management at the very end when everything else has failed.

However, under the Kunda-Nqob'i TB (KNTB) project, palliative care is correctly offered at the very point of diagnosis in line with the World Health Organization (WHO) definition that palliative care is an approach that improves the quality of life for patients and their families facing life threatening illness. This allows for the patient to be treated using a more holistic approach and given the most appropriate symptom assessment from a physical, psycho-social, and spiritual perspective.

So, the true place of palliative care is right alongside our curative interventions. An assessment was conducted for * Mandla and it revealed that physically he had shortness of breath, a persistent cough, and joint pains. He was thus provided with pain management drugs at home. From a psychosocial perspective, he had financial concerns which were addressed through a monthly stipend from . He also had considerable anxiety and received routine counseling from the trained palliative care volunteer, during which family dynamics were also addressed.

Most of his fears and worries as well as those of his wife and extended family were addressed through health education and the provision of infection control masks, with regular screening conducted for contacts at risk. The palliative care trained community volunteer visited regularly to provide the family support and occasionally was supported by the local community nurse.

In the end, all of this home-based care support helped encourage a more positive treatment journey & outcome for *Mandla who is now living DRTB Free.
