World TB Day: Reach the 3 Million

Today SIAPS joins people around the world commemorating World TB Day. This year’s theme, “Reach the 3 million,” is a call worldwide to find, treat and cure the undetected TB cases left behind in the fight against TB. Read about the first Conference on Pharmaceutical Management for TB and M/XDR-TB for the WHO European Region, sponsored by SIAPS, WHO and the Global Drug Facility. We also direct you to SIAPS’s new publication, Preventing and Minimizing Risks Associated with Antituberculosis Medicines to Improve Patient Safety, outlining the process of planning and introducing TB risk-reduction strategies. To learn more about SIAPS’s work in Tanzania to identify some of the 3 million people with undetected and untreated TB, please watch our video, At the duka.
