The OTPs saw 20 deaths this month, which is the highest number of deaths so far this year, and the highest death rate of total OTP discharges since September 2011 (although still relatively low at 1.6%).

Family Hygiene Kit Distributions

On 23 March 2013, the CTC Programme received supplies to resume distributing family hygiene kits to cases discharged cured from OTP. Cases discharged cured from OTP are admitted into SFP for another two months of follow-up. Providing the kits at the time of OTP discharge provides an additional incentive to the mother to keep her child in OTP until the child is cured, and helps ensure the child be registered into the SFP for follow up.
