A Driving Force in Swaziland
Description: "This is a story that I feel will never get out of my mind, we gave back life and hope to a patient who had totally lost hope because of the deafness she experienced." - MSF Laboratory Technician Sellah describes working on the Manzini project. Despite not being a conflict zone, Swaziland is enduring its own medical emergency. Swaziland has one of the highest rates of TB and Multi-Drug resistant (MDR-TB) TB worldwide while 80% of people in Swaziland who contract TB are HIV positive. One of the side effects of the MDR-TB treatment is partial or full deafness. We're working with patients, staff, and the community to learn sign language so patients can communicate with their families and colleagues.
