Empty Land, Promised land, Forbidden land (2010)

Gulripsh, ABKHAZIA, 2009 - Vladislav Vladimirovich Demyanov (63) in Gulprish Hospital; the centre of MSF's TB program in Abkhazia. MSF has supported the local National TB programme to treat TB Patients in Abkhazia since 1996. Since 2001 the programme has also included treatment for drug resistant TB (MDR-TB) - one of the most frightening health scourges of former Soviet countries. In Abkhazia, MDR-TB is known as the 'King of Diseases'. Treatment for MDR-TB can take more than three years, but a cure cannot be guaranteed..© ROB HORNSTRA/+31 6 14365936.
