A systematic process to identify previously undiagnosed cases of Leprosy among the contacts of an index case. With the case finding activity, Contact Tracing was also introduced and was implemented to help in completely eliminating the disease as a Public Health Problem. Contact Tracing is an innovation to the Final Push in eliminating the disease. This activity was integrated with Kilatis Kutis Campaign. We identify "hot spots/target families"for possible surveillance. Prevalence rate will be decrease and High detection rate will be realized by means of focused screening.
Bicol Sanitarium also develops software to be used in the Contact Tracing activity. Patients who were identified during the activity will be registered together with their contacts. The software serves as a data bank wherein patients where registered and helps in focused screening.
