Kyrgyzstan continues to adopt innovations in fight against tuberculosis

Report TB or face jail term

The incidence of tuberculosis (TB) in India could be as high as 2.8 million, yet only 1.7 million cases were notified in 2015, the latest data on the disease shows.

World Tuberculosis Day is observed on March 24 every year to spread awareness about the life-threatening disease, to stretch the reach of prevention measures and to celebrate the efforts taken against the disease.

The theme of the year is "Wanted: Leaders for a TB-free world".

Porter also says, most people who are infected with TB are treated for the wrong infection.

It is one of the leading killers among people of working age people creating and reinforcing a cycle of ill-health and poverty, with potential catastrophic social and economic consequences for families, communities, and countries.

Earlier on the eve of World TB Day, the World Health Organisation (WHO) had urged the countries to harness the power of technology for early diagnosis of this disease.

More than 95 percent of TB related deaths happen in low- and middle-income nations.

Mary's County Tim Cameron said, "When the SRO fired, the suspect as described to me fired nearly simultaneously". So far, this year, there have already been 17 school shootings where someone was hurt or killed .

The region has seen progress, with TB treatment coverage increasing to 76 per cent in 2016 from 69 per cent in 2007. She was diagnosed with tuberculosis shortly before her death in 1962. In recent years, the DH and the HA laboratories have efficiently reduced the time in making diagnoses and provided better support to front-line doctors by adopting molecular technology in quick testing.

Tobacco increases the risk of getting TB. But some worry whether TB can be spread through other means such as sexual contact and kissing.

According to Pruitt, people with TB disease are sick from TB germs that are active, meaning that they are multiplying and destroying tissue in their body.

The European Parliament resolution on the EU's response to HIV/AIDS, Tuberculosis and Hepatitis C, adopted in July 2017 is a significant step but the NGO community is still waiting for a TB, HIV/AIDS and Hepatitis C policy framework adressing each disease's specificities. Symptoms may include weight loss, loss of appetite, night sweats, fever, fatigue, chills, protracted coughing, sometimes coughing up blood, and chest pain.

Peters Etete, president, Nigerian Thoracic Society said, World TB Day is commemorated across the globe with activities as diverse as the locations in which they are held. It focuses on eliminating TB through concerted efforts by all quarters - not just the legislators and government agencies, but also those who are infected by TB.

As per health report, TB kills an estimated 4,80,000 Indians every year. TB continues to be one of the biggest public health challenges in our country.

One of the obstacles to treating TB is the long treatment process. Greater partnerships between the public and private sectors are urgently needed to accelerate innovation that leads to the discovery, development and rapid uptake of new tools to prevent and treat TB and HIV, as are strategies for shorter and less-toxic TB regimens.
