Publicity for TB
- Anti-TB campaigns: Regular health talks, exhibitions etc.
are organised by the TB & Chest Service to raise public
awareness about TB, and to secure community support to
fight against the disease.
- No discrimination against TB patients: TB is a disease
that can be completely cured. The great majority of TB
patients can be rendered non-infectious and can return to
work or school soon after commencement of anti-TB
- Support for TB patients: As the treatment for TB
requires at least 6 months, family members, friends, and
colleagues should offer support to the patients so that they
can take the treatment regularly and complete the whole
course of treatment.
