Good record-keeping ensures medications are available to patients
February 26, 2013
"Kwa dawa ya TB ni lazima utembee mpaka upate." (You should never give up when searching for anti-TB medicines). This is the advice that Esther Wahome gives to her clients when they come to the tuberculosis (TB) clinic in Kayole II, one of the larger public hospitals near Nairobi, Kenya. Esther is a registered community health nurse. Within a short time, Esther dispenses the drugs to the patient, provides health care advice and updates her records.
