TB Services

We offer TB screening, Sputum induction, treatment and TB prophylactic therapy.

Since HIV and TB are inextricably linked, Baylor-Lesotho actively screens patients for TB and provides prophylaxis. Infection control procedures have been strengthened and patients receive a daily briefing on TB prevention and diagnosis. Baylor-Lesotho provides TB treatment for children regardless of their HIV status. Recent efforts have improved the care of HIV-uninfected children suffering from tuberculosis and many children are referred to the COE and SCOEs for this care.
