THINK with the support of @USAID and @kznhealth, launched a brand new fleet of Mobile X-ray vans during the World TB Day event in Howick, Mpophomeni in March. These vans are intended to complement TB screening initiatives among key populations in uThukela, Amajuba, uMgungundlovu and uMkhanyakude districts.
Each van is staffed with a radiographer to take X-rays and an enrolled nurse to assess the results and the patient’s overall health. This enables us to diagnose TB patients quicker and to link them to care at the facility.
Let’s invest in efforts to stop TB!
