Grim reality of TB

Dr Clarke made reference to the 30,000 new TB cases in the last 10 years, which have been reported every year.

Tuberculosis, drug resistant TB and TB and HIV co-infection are the leading causes of death from infectious diseases in the country.

Dr Clarke highlighted that TB case notification has increased since 2008.

In response, Business for Health, a not-for-profit organisation, is designed to mitigate the impact of the TB and HIV epidemics in the private sector.
