Today, March 24, 2023, SignalADoc commemorates World Tuberculosis Day 2023 in an effort to raise awareness about the deadly infection.
World Tuberculosis (TB) Day 2023 will focus on the theme, ‘Yes! We can end TB!’ aiming to inspire hope and encourage high-level leadership, increased investments, faster uptake of new World Health Organization (WHO) recommendations, adoption of innovations, accelerated action, and multisectoral collaboration to combat the tuberculosis epidemic.
This year is going to be critical for all who are engaged in TB work and should be championed as the ‘year of hope’ to get full support, attention, and energy for a collective ‘YES! We can End TB’.
There are several key areas to focus on such as financial needs to scale up implementation and speed up, research and development of new tools including a new TB vaccine, access to new rapid molecular diagnosis and to new shorter and more efficient treatment regimens, TB prevention, TB in children, strengthening and funding Communities.
The campaign will also contribute to boosting global TB awareness and ensure the endorsement of a strong political declaration and maximum participation by the Heads of State and Heads of Government at the upcoming UNHLM on TB in September 2023.
Today, MD of SignalADoc, Osagie Omokaro joins a network of organisations, the W.H.O, the Stop TB Partnership and various nations fighting tuberculosis to highlight the disease scope and how it can be prevented and cured.
