This amazing gift will help protect 40 children against tuberculosis (TB), a highly contagious bacterial infection, which is one of the largest health threats to communities in Papua New Guinea and can be fatal if untreated.
How this gift helps
Due to the high prevalence of tuberculosis (TB) in Papua New Guinea, ChildFund Village Health Volunteers vaccinate at-risk babies who have not yet been exposed to TB in their community. This infection is highly contagious and can be fatal if untreated. TB is one of the top five causes of deaths in PNG each year and children make up one-third of all TB cases. This vaccine decreases the child’s chance of getting infected with TB and of developing the disease if exposed.
