Efforts needed to eradicate TB


Shehar Bano Syed

The recent Global Tuberculosis Report by World Health Organization stressed that more efforts are needed to prevent, detect, and treat the disease if we are to meet global targets. The report also signalled the need for bold political commitment and increased funding as well. Since Pakistan is also one of the countries where tuberculosis is rampant, therefore every effort should be made to eradicate tuberculosis, as nothing is more important than health of the people at large. Only words followed by actions would make the impact.
