Today marks the World Tuberculosis day worldwide. I had no clue until by accident I stumbled upon a picture on BBC.co.uk!! After all, a picture is worth a thousand words.

I know that here in Kuwait TB isn’t much of a problem with Nationals and people born in Kuwait, but this doesn’t mean we’re not part of this world and be involved.

One might think it’s just another disease day! What can I do to help? Well you can start by Educating your self and others around you about TB. Be part of initiatives that call for Access to Essential Medicines to those that need it most. Oh and if you hold any kind of political or administrative power, then by all means, support initiatives that combat diseases like TB!
