Tantang TB Project (Indonesia)
The project was developed in support of The Global Fund and the Indonesian government’s goal to eliminate tuberculosis by 2030.
In 2018, Fullerton Health Foundation partnered with The Global Fund to successfully pilot the Tantang Tuberculosis Project, with the goal of increasing detection of tuberculosis in Indonesia. Through the use of mobile screening clinics and working closely with Fullerton Health subsidiary Tirta Medical Centre, a team of medical professionals and community workers screened more than 2,000 residents in South Sulawesi, an identified area for the high prevalence of tuberculosis. Through the project, patients diagnosed with TB received prompt treatment through close collaboration with the Regional Health Authorities (Dinas Kesehatan).
