Spanish term or phrase: supervisado en boca
Hi,

This term crops up in a Peruvian article on TB.

"En relación al tratamiento, es muy difícil realizar la observación del tratamiento supervisado en boca, por falta de personal."

From the context I assume it means face-to-face, in the flesh, or something like that - can't find it used anywhere else myself.

My attempt: 'Regarding treatment, it is very difficult to carry out a supervised observation of the treatment, due to lack of staff.'

Any ideas greatly appreciated.

Thanks.
