Dr. Harutai Kamalaporn sees 12 of the 30 patients diagnosed with CF in Thailand. The challenges she faces are: lack of medications, equipment and sweat chloride tests at all three hospitals. Dr. Kamalaporn continues to advocate for more testing machines. Some countries, such as India and Bangladesh have developed their own indigenous method for sweat testing. This is according to information put out in part by the Official Journal of Asian Pediatric Society in the Pediatric Respirology and Critical Care Magazine.
