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.

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.

In 2020, MSF teams responded to the COVID-19 pandemic, treating patients in Port Moresby and training medical staff in 22 provinces.
