The TB program entails diagnoses, treatment and follow-up of patients. Case detection and cure rate are generally high, reflecting the excellent care rendered in the TB Ward. Irrespective of the challenges, the success of the TB program this year was due to the team spirit of the members in diagnosing, treating and follow-up of patients. Dr. Alexis Cambanis, a specialist in tropical medicines, still visited the Hospital this year from his new settlement in England.
