Speeding up TB detection in Cambodia

5 octubre 2015

Tuberculosis (TB) is still a major health problem in Cambodia. New research in the slums of Phnom Penh, where tuberculosis (TB) wreaks havoc, has helped to develop a more effective approach to actively detect TB cases by using new diagnostic tools and strong involvement by the local community. The new approach allowed health workers to detect TB cases more quickly, which reduces the risk of further transmission of the disease.
