The Indonesian Tuberculosis Strategic Partnership Foundation or Stop TB Partnership Indonesia (STPI) believes that the elimination of tuberculosis (TB) in Indonesia is achieved if it is based on a strong partnership between government, private and community elements. Since its establishment as a Foundation in 2018, STPI has initiated cross-sectoral advocacy efforts for national TB policies, built a governance model for handling TB across sectors in districts and villages, and campaigned for TB issues in social media and mass media.
Airborne infectious diseases are the biggest threats to global health security. Despite the devastation caused by COVID-19, the world remains vulnerable to the next airborne infection. The international community relied on the tuberculosis (TB) infrastructure and expertise to respond to COVID-19, and can strengthen its preparedness by further investing in the TB response, which utilizes the same interventions and technology needed to fight other airborne infections. The Airborne Infections Defense Platform (AIDP) aims to strengthen political commitment and partnerships, globally and at country level, that will enhance the use of existing TB services for the detection, treatment, and prevention of airborne infectious diseases in high TB burden countries. A key feature of the platform is the deployment of new
technologies, including ultraportable radiography, digital innovations, and rapid molecular diagnostic tests to quickly and accurately detect TB, while accelerating or expanding the detection of other airborne infections, and linking people to care and referral services by relying on strong linkages to affected communities and civil societies. More specifically, AIDP will help address the urgent realities of TB, COVID-19, and other airborne threats by:
Expanding the involvement of communities and civil society in screening, contact tracing, care, and referral to improve early diagnosis, treatment and prevention measures;
Enhancing person-centered prevention and care for TB, COVID-19, and other diseases caused by airborne pathogens, thereby improving services and mitigating transmission and potential epidemics; and
Expanding knowledge and implementation of best practices for infection prevention and control (IPC) of respiratory illnesses.
AIDP will build on lessons learned from implementation of national programs in high TB burden countries, which have been developed with the support of USAID, the Stop TB Partnership (STP), World Health Organization (WHO), and other stakeholders. It will draw experience from the COVID-19 pandemic and a strong two-decade foundation of community engagement for enhanced detection, laboratory diagnostic network development with rapid molecular tests, reliance on evidence-based policies for optimal person-centered treatment (including drug-resistant forms of TB), contact investigation or tracing, and training on and implementation of airborne infection prevention.
