Near zero healthcare seeking behaviour among gender-based violence survivors: MSF stresses for community linked, survivor centric care model after latest data in India

MSF emphasized that over 98 per cent of gender-based violence survivors, as recorded in the new survey data, do not access healthcare due to the absence of comprehensive medical care available in close proximity to vulnerable groups, as well as the fear of mandatory police reporting.

MSF recommends WHO
Tuberculosis: Clinical trial results offer hope to DR-TB patients with short, effective treatment
Jharkhand: fighting malnutrition alongside local communities

MSF Community Health Educator Subashini Deb Mahto shares her first-hand experience of malnutrition.

MSF responds to new WHO guidance recommending vastly shorter, improved and better-tolerated treatment for multi drug-resistant TB

Following the results of MSF’s trial the WHO are now recommending programmatic use of the 6-month BPaLM regimen – comprising bedaquiline, pretomanid, linezolid (600 mg) and moxifloxacin in MDR-TB patients in place of longer, existing regimens. WHO are also recommending another shorter treatment; the BPaL combination in patients with increased drug-resistance as both regimens showed high treatment success.

Fighting TB with hope: Stories of stigma and strength from three generations in Mumbai, India

From a seven-year-old child to a mother of two children, drug-resistant tuberculosis is rampant among all age groups. Globally, TB is the leading killer among infectious diseases and one-third of these deaths occurred in India.
We bring you stories from three generations: a girl in paediatric care named Vaishnavi, a 26-years-old man Chetan who aspired to build a prosperous career abroad, and a 33-years-old TB survivor Namrata who is now a community health worker with MSF in #mumbai .
