WNB steps up in TB response

Ownership, accountability and sustainability is the declaration West New Britain is making in response to tuberculosis (TB) in the province.

The province recognises that the time has come for all government agencies from national, provincial and local level governments to take ownership and sustain the provincial TB program.

The governments of West New Britain Province admit it is everyone’s moral responsibility to control the disease now for a TB-free future.

All levels of government will stand together and demonstrate solidarity and commitment to work together towards this cause.

The province welcomes partnership and seeks the involvement of all citizens of West New Britain in this fight and to recognise that everyone has a role to play to combat TB.

In unison, it is declared it will no longer be acceptable that a WNB citizen should die unnecessarily from this curable disease where medicine is available and free.
