Tomorrow is #WorldTBDay
#Tuberculosis is an infectious disease that primarily affects the lungs 🫁 but can also affect other parts of the body.
TB is preventable and curable. Here’s more information 👇🏾
#EquatorialGuinea’s 🇬🇶 Ministry of Health has confirmed eight more cases of #Marburg, bringing the number of confirmed cases to 9 since the outbreak of the viral haemorrhagic fever was declared on 13 February 👉🏿 http://ow.ly/fF1K50NpN9k
I commend the Government of #Tanzania for quickly identifying and reporting the #MarburgVirus Disease outbreak in Kagera. @UNICEF is working with Tanzania to respond together with @WHO_Tanzania and partners. Let us stand in solidarity with #MarburgOutbreakInTanzania.
Investment in #tuberculosis research and innovation can save more lives. New effective diagnostics, medicines and vaccines can speed up progress to #endTB.
