Octaviano Nono

TB Junior Healthcare Worker (Oecusse)

I work at Maluk Timor as TB Healthcare Worker and my role are: • Support the implementation of cough triage. • Support, develop and utilize TB referral registration book effectively in Oecusse referral hospital • Work together with various departments in case referral hospitals to carry out the screening of TB patients. I’m honoured to work with our program because we share our knowledge to the community, so that they can understand more about TB. The changes that I have experienced since working at Maluk Timor is, I have gained more knowledge about the TB program. The challenge that I encounter is the lack of transportation for the patient to come to the Community Health Centre to take medicine, so we have to deliver it to their house.
