Using the opportunity of a platform on NTV Uganda to advocate for the “Defeat TB” and “End TB” campaigns. To be interviewed by Edris Matu was a fabulous experience. He is much younger than I and yet on top of his game; the epitome of who I would like considered ‘the youth’ in Uganda.
What an honour and a privilege to serve. The scourge of tuberculosis is is real in Uganda with a prevalence rate of 87,000 cases annually according to the national TB survey that was conducted by the Ministry of Health.
