BOAC, Marinduque – The province’s first Programmatic Management of Drug-Resistant Tuberculosis (TB) Satellite Treatment Center (PMDRT-STC) was recently launched at the Boac Rural Health Unit.
The treatment center was funded by the USAid in coordination with the Philippine Business for Social Progress and in partnership with the Department of Health- MIMAROPA.
With the launching of the center, persons with drug-resistent TB will have a better chance of improving their conditions.
One of reasons of the drug resistance is the failure of patients to complete their first round of treatment.
Government established centers nationwide where TB, a curable disease when given early attention and detection, is treated for free.
