What does it take to get from Maseru, Lesotho’s capital city, to the Lebakeng Health Center? An 8-hour car drive, a rowboat ride across the Telle River, and a 30-minute hike up the mountainside. During one recent trip, PIH/Lesotho staff delivered obstetrical and clinical supplies to nurses from Lebakeng Health Center. In exchange, the nurses handed over sputum samples to be taken back to Maseru for GeneXpert testing to determine if patients have TB and/or drug-resistant tuberculosis. Learn more about PIH/Lesotho.
