Course Description

The World Health Organisation [WHO] declared TB a “Global Emergency” in 1993 and stated that “TB is humanity’s greatest killer” because TB kills more adults each year than any other infectious disease, including malaria and all tropical diseases.

A third of the world population is infected by Mycobacterium tuberculosis bacilli, the infectious cause (germ) of tuberculosis. Approximately eight million new TB cases develop every year, three million people dying every year from TB. Tuberculosis has been declared a priority health issue by the Minister of Health.
