Tuberculosis (TB) is more prevalent in Buenaventura, one of Columbia's biggest port cities, than anywhere else in the country. Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) is working there because many people in urgent need of TB treatment have difficulty accessing the healthcare system. More than 300 TB and drug-resistant TB patients were admitted to the program in 2012.
