(North Korea) Tuberculosis Patient Ward

(North Korea) Tuberculosis Patient Ward

Multidrug-resistant tuberculosis (MDR-TB) care requires close medical supervision for at least 18 months. North Korean MDR-TB patients are housed in substandard, over-crowded, non-insulated, cold, drafty patient wards that were built at least 30 years ago. Father Gerard Hammond, M.M., is providing new duplex patient housing units that are warm and comfortable so that patients will stay in treatment centers during the winter months and not return home and infect their families with TB. This will protect families and improve patient treatment outcomes. These buildings have been designed to meet World Health Organization standards for TB care with no halls and all doors opening to the outside to prevent the spread of tuberculosis germs from room to room.

In addition, 35 pregnant HIV+ destitute women, 97 newly delivered HIV+women and their 98 babies benefit from the Prevention of Parent to Child Transmission component of the project.
