About the Tuberculosis Section

The Tuberculosis Control Section is part of the SPC Public Health Division (PHD). The PHD aims to improve the overall standard of the health of Pacific Island peoples. It works across numerous public health fields, particularly communicable and noncommunicable diseases and public health policy.

The vision of the Tuberculosis Control Section is to help build a high level of competency, capacity, and independence within National TB Programs so that they can sustainably reduce the deadly impact of TB in Pacific island countries and territories.

Through meeting this goal our vision is that the National TB Programs will contribute to reducing poverty and hardship in their respective countries, leading ultimately to an improved quality of life in the Pacific.

 

The Tuberculosis Control Section is made up of five staff.
