TB Dispensary Arkhangelsk, Northern Russia
In Russia, MSF is collaborating with health authorities and academic partners in Arkhangelsk region to reduce the burden of drug-resistant tuberculosis and improve treatment for the disease.

In 2019, our teams in Arkhangelsk region began providing drugs and technical advice to support the treatment of patients with the most severe forms of TB in line with the latest World Health Organization recommendations. We are currently supporting the treatment of dozens of patients.

In partnership with Arkhangelsk Regional Ministry of Health, Northern State Medical University and Arkhangelsk Clinical TB Dispensary, we are building on existing expertise and working together to implement new all-oral short-course regimens. The aim of the collaboration is to provide evidence for future developments in TB policy in Russia and increase the availability of more effective models of treatment.  

MSF teams are also responding to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Our teams have been working in Russia since the early 1990s, running programmes in Moscow, Saint Petersburg, Kemerovo region, Chechnya, Ingushetia and Dagestan.
