Nowesele Phandle, a village health worker and horse rider, tracks down TB patients who would otherwise never be treated. Supported by a grant from the Stop TB Partnership's TB REACH initiative, Foundation for Innovative New Diagnostics (FIND) is using horse riders to collect the sputum samples needed to diagnose TB from patients in the most far flung parts of the country.
