  1. Domiciliary health counselling in patients with sexually transmitted diseases.

    Article - En anglais

    To improve treatment compliance, follow-up and attendance of STD patients and their contacts, a programme, based on domiciliary visits was attempted.

    The programme was limited to male defaulters not responding to written and telephone calls.

    House visits to 79 out of 169 defaulters were made.

    Approximately half the number of houses were found locked.

    Fourteen defaulting patients reported for completion of their treatment and follow-up.

    Of these 11 were directly interviewed.

    None of the 14 patients agreed to disclose the addresses of their extramarital partners.

    During the study period 51 female sex contacts reported for treatment as compared to 27 in the control group.

    Though the numbers were small the study revealed that direct contact with the patient yielded the best results.

    It is suggested that to make the system cost-effective the health workers should spend time with STD patients in the clinic to mark out the correct location and time for meeting the patient either in the work place or at home in case of a follow-up.
