Community Health Worker Chat

Jul 16, 2010
Malteser International work within the slums in a catchment area of 600,000. It is very difficult to control the infection rate of any disease in these areas but TB even more so as it is spread through the air, it’s highly infectious and is often deadly. However, it is curable with a six to eight month course of antibiotics.

It seems so easy to treat people but the problem is the pills make you feel better so the TB patient doesn’t complete the full course. As a result the disease just lies dormant and often returns within months but more aggressive and now resistant to the antibiotics.

Malteser Int quickly identified this problem and credits their success to the Volunteer Community Workers. Watch our 3 minute interview with Purity and be inspired.
