A WORKSHOP: Community-based TB case-finding and treatment support: working with Baru Conservation Alliance rangers in the remote mountain areas of East Kwaio.
Tuberculosis (TB) remains at unacceptable rates in the East Kwaio area of Solomon Islands. At the Atoifi Adventist Hospital (AAH) approximately 10-15 people are treated for TB each year. In a population of 10,000 this equates to 100-150 cases/100,000 pop. There are many more undiagnosed cases known to occur in mountain areas and distant villages.
The Baru Conservation Alliance Rangers have been trained and are conducting active TB case-finding in culturally relevant ways. This workshop will evaluate progress to date and plan future activities.
Date: Tuesday 27 - Thursday 29 April, 2021
Location: Baru Conservation Alliance Headquarters, Auki or via Zoom
