Arduous and lengthy treatment of tuberculosis

Papua New Guinea

We are working to improve access to screening and treatment for tuberculosis (TB) in Papua New Guinea.

Around 25 per cent of people with TB in Papua New Guinea live in Port Moresby, in the National Capital District.

In collaboration with the national TB programme, our team has been scaling up the capacities for screening, diagnosis, treatment initiation and follow-up in Port Moresby’s Gerehu hospital. Mobile teams work in the community to improve patient adherence to treatment.

In Gulf province, our TB programme supports two health centres as well as Kerema general hospital.

Currently, poor access to remote areas and the lack of an effective follow-up system result in a high number of patients not completing their treatment.
