Jharkhand: fighting malnutrition alongside local communities

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

India Activity Report 2021

In 2021, we balanced our priorities for existing projects with the new challenges that COVID-19 placed on us all. From providing life-saving, holistic care for an extremely vulnerable cohort of highly stigmatized advanced HIV patients to taking basic healthcare to people living in remote villages, throughout our work, we ensured we reached out to those most vulnerable, those most neglected.

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.
