Ministry optimistic of revealing 80 percent of TB cases

Report TB or face jail term

Consumption, as original audiences would have known it, fuelled the romantic narrative of operatic voices on the stage from Mimi in Puccini's La Bohème to Violetta in Giuseppe Verdi's La Traviata.

The WHO has designated March 24 of each year as World TB Day to encourage global efforts to combat TB together.

"We have set a target to discover 80 percent of the estimated 1,020,000 TB carriers", Director General for Prevention and Control of Disease of the Ministry of Health, Anung Sugihantono, said in Jakarta on Wednesday. But while it may well be a disease with history, it is regretably not yet a disease of the past. As it is a complicated technique, this can not be performed on children mostly. Greater partnerships between the public and private sectors are urgently needed to accelerate innovation that leads to the discovery, development and rapid uptake of new tools to prevent and treat TB and HIV, as are strategies for shorter and less-toxic TB regimens. In case a TB-infected person coughs, talks, laughs or sneezes near you and you breathe the germs that s/he released, you too will get infected with TB.

We are aiming to do this by identifying what genes are switched on or off following exposure to TB - we test the blood transcriptome of children to see what genes are activated and follow our patients for 2 years afterwards.

More than 90 per cent of new cases in the Region have been treated successfully, but drug-resistant forms of the disease remain a concern, World Health Organization said in statement. The disease remains an epidemic in much of the world, causing almost 1.7 million deaths each year, mostly in developing countries. When treatment is not completed, there are high chances of reinfection with severe forms such as multi-drug resistant TB (MDR-TB), extremely-drug resistant TB (XDR-TB) and the deadliest totally-drug resistant TB (TDR-TB).


Infectious Disease Specialist Pam Whitney with the Missoula City County Health Department said the disease is trending downward in Montana, despite one highly publicized case at Flathead High School.

In India in particular, the fight against TB will now be in mission mode. "End TB", which highlights the importance of engaging people from all across the world to put efforts to eliminate TB. The key to effectively tackling TB is for quick diagnosis as this helps to stop it from spreading to others. "This means they will not be treated and they will continue to transmit the disease in the community"'.

Secondly, communities must be empowered to call on governments to demand their right to health - improving living standards to reduce the burden of TB and HIV. The European Parliament must continue to press the European Commission to act - and not lose the momentum aforded by the United Nations process.

"The TB rate is coming down in the Region, but it's not happening fast enough".
