(North Korea) Tuberculosis Patient Ward

Multidrug-resistant tuberculosis (MDR-TB) care requires close medical supervision for at least 18 months.

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.
