DPRD TULUNGAGUNG – Upaya Dinas Kesehatan Kabupaten Tulungagung dalam penanggulangan penyakit tuberkulosis (TB) di Tulungagung mendapat apresiasi dari DPRD Tulungagung. Mereka pun mendukung acara Lokakarya Konsultasi Publik RAD (Rencana Aksi Daerah) Pengendalian TB yang diselenggarakan Dinas Kesehatan di Pendopo Kongas Arum Kusumaning Bongso, Rabu (8/3).

“Penyusunan RAD pengendalian TB merupakan langkah yang bagus dan harus didukung. Apalagi Indonesia penduduknya masih banyak yang menderita penyakit TB,” ujar Ketua Komisi C DPRD Tulungagung, Drs Subani Sirab di sela-sela acara Lokakarya Konsultasi Publik RAD Pengendalian TB.

Selain Subani Sirab, hadir pula dalam acara tersebut Wakil Ketua DPRD Tulungagung, Agus Budiarto SE Ak. Mereka hadir bersama Bupati Tulungagung, Syahri Mulyo SE MSi, Wakil Bupati Tulungagung, Drs Maryoto MM, Kepala Dinas Kesehatan Kabupaten Tulungagung, dr Moch Mastur MM dan Kabid Kabid P2P Dinas Kesehatan Provinsi Jawa Timur, drg Ansarul Fahruda Mkes.

Subani Sirab berharap dengan penyusunan RAD pengendalian tuberkulosis dapat membuat Kabupaten Tulungagung segera bebas dari penderita TB. “Apalagi Indonesia kata bupati, penduduknya tercatat peringkat kedua di dunia yang banyak menderita TB,” katanya.

Sebelumnya, Bupati Syahri Mulyo mengungkapkan Indonesia sebagai negara yang penduduknya banyak menderita penyakit TB. “Indonesia peringkat dua, sedang peringkat satunya India. Ini tentu bukan berita baik,” tuturnya.

Minimnya penderita TB di Indonesia melakukan pengobatan termasuk di Tulungagung disesalkan Bupati Syahri  Mulyo. “Penduduk Kabupaten Tulungagung pada tahun 2016 berjumlah 1.026.101 jiwa, perkiraan kasus TB-nya adalah sebesar 3.242 kasus dan yang ditemukan baru 980 kasus. Ini menunjukkan masih terdapat 2.262 kasus yang belum ditemukan dan diobati,” ujarnya.

Sesuai survei Prevalensi Nasional (SPN) TB 2013-2014, penduduk  di Provinsi Jawa Timur yang menderita penyakit TB sebesar 316/100.000 penduduk. Artinya, perkiraan penderita TB yang ada di masyarakat sebanyak 316 jiwa per 100.000 penduduk. Sedang secara nasional prevalensinya sebesar 660/100.000 penduduk.
