CPAR Uganda Ltd Fighting TB

 

“Ugandans need to worry more about tuberculosis (TB). The Uganda Ministry of Health records 1,200 new cases of drug resistant TB annually, but is only able to find 400 of those cases. The 800 remain in communities unattended to and infect more people.” Dr. Ruth Aceng, Minister of Health, of the Republic of Uganda is reported to have said.

Scientific research findings of a study that CPAR Uganda Ltd is participating in point to the fact that Uganda’s overall capacity to diagnose TB is in fact very low and this should worry us all.

Uganda’s capacity to diagnose TB being very low is seemingly a direct consequence of insufficient public funding to Uganda’s health sector in general and to the fight against TB in particular.

Scientific research findings of a study that CPAR Uganda Ltd is participating confirm that Uganda’s TB health care services provision is generally mostly dependent on external donations.
