DCM Inaugurates New Early Detection TB Lab

DCM Kristen Bauer cut the ribbon on an USAID and Becton, Dickinson and Company (BD) 3 year public-private partnership to improve diagnostic technology crucial to saving lives and preventing the spread of TB at a Surabaya laboratory.  The GeneXpert diagnostic tool dramatically reduces diagnosis time for multi-drug resistant TB and will greatly benefit the citizens of East Java.  The plan is to integrate this technology into 19 laboratories throughout Indonesia and BD has committed $750,000 to this effort.
