[podcast] Fighting TB one 'Barangay' at a time: New decentralised & point-of-care tools making a difference

This podcast features Dr Samantha Tinsay, Municipal Health Officer, Bantayan Municipality, Cebu, Philippines, who shares her team's experience of deploying new TB diagnostic tools (ultra-portable x-ray of Fujifilm, and molecular test Truenat of Molbio Diagnostics) in Bantayan islands or islets.

More importantly. she shares the context how these new tools (xray and molecular test Truenat) were taken on a 'pump boat' (a utility boat in Philippines) from one islet to another for active case finding, and how these tools worked effectively on the ground - in very basic infrastructure (like under a tent) - and braving extreme weather conditions too.
