Annual TB Infection Rate Of Three Million

Nearly 3 million Pakistanis are affected by Tuberculosis (TB) annually and the number is growing due to lack of awareness and prompt treatment.

A call for help was issue last Thursday at a news conference by Chaudhry Muhammad Nawaz, President of the Punjab Anti-Tuberculosis Association.

"The number of women affected by this disease is larger as compared to men," he added.

Chaudhry Muhammad Nawaz appealed to the Government to declare TB as a notified disease. He said World Health Organization has proclaimed world emergency as TB is closely connected with AIDS.
