Hospital marks World TB Day

Monday, March 24, 2014

Update: 2:55PM TODAY marks World Tuberculosis (TB) Day a day dedicated to raising awareness about the curable nature of TB and the need to work towards eradicating the disease.

This was discussed this morning during the TB Day celebrations at the PJ Twomey Hospital in Tamavua.

TB Clinic medical officer Dr William Kaitani said Fiji needed to reach out to the TB-positive people and help them get required treatment to remove the infectious disease.

Latest statistics from 2013 revealed that Fiji does not currently suffer from major TB issues, with around 24 people in every 100,000 suffering from TB around the country.
