VICE News: Drones Are Being Tested in the Fight Against a Tuberculosis Epidemic in Papua New Guinea
“Drones have been trialed by Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) to combat a centuries-old disease that has crippled communities in one of the most untamed wildernesses on earth. … MSF this year began to help local authorities tackle TB in [Papua New Guinea’s] Western Province. According to a Papua New Guinea government mission to the region, the region has one of the worst TB rates anywhere in the world, but it’s the landscape that throws up even bigger challenges…” (Mitchell, 12/3).
