Zimbabwe has opened 10 one-stop clinics that are becoming lifesavers for its patients.

The clinics which are being run on pilot basis across the country will offer free diagnosis and treatment to people suffering from tuberculosis and diabetes.

A nurse at the Rutsanana Polyclinic in Harare’s poor suburb of Glen Norah said if anyone is on TB treatment and also has diabetes, with the diabetes well controlled, chances of recovery are very high.

The project is expected to reach 46 health facilities across the country with additional funds from the World Diabetes Foundation, the Global Fund Against Aids and the Zimbabwean government.
