Daru hospital staff threaten to withdraw services

In 2013 the Burnet Institute reported that the province was suffering from ‘one of the worst tuberculosis (TB) epidemics in the world’. The number of victims kept on climbing where, unfortuantely, those at the forefront of the battle also succumbed to the infectious disease, especially to the extensively drug-resistant TB (XDR-TB).

The health workers at Daru hospital claim that the Government has ignored their plight for so long that they are taking another step further to ensure that history does not repeat itself.
