Bringing TB Care To Remote Nepal: 



On June 2, 2019, Stony Brook University’s Global Health Institute, in partnership with the Government, BMNT and Nepal Flying Labs, launched a program to use drones to deliver a bundle of innovative technology to help to diagnose and treat TB patients in the Pyuthan District of Nepal.




"We came asking if drones can be used to deliver healthcare in a really remote setting... We left wondering how quality healthcare can possibly be delivered without them." - Dr. Peter Small
