March 24 is the World Tuberculosis Day, but senior technical advisor on multidrug-resistant TB (MDR-TB), Dr Anh Innes, says world TB day should be every day.
This means increasing awareness on TB and her main message is that TB can be cured.
She said the idea was to find it early, detect early and initiate treatment.
"Even for drug-resistant TB patients, they can be cured," she said.
Dr Innes was in Port Moresby last week and conducted a one-day workshop to equip awareness among a few physicians and health care practitioners from around the country.
