World Tuberculosis Day

24 Mar, 2022

Tuberculosis (TB) is a bacterial infection that can spread through inhaling tiny droplets from the coughs or sneezes of an infected person. It mainly affects the lungs, but it can affect any part of the body, including the abdomen, glands, bones, and nervous system. TB is a potentially serious condition, but it can be prevented and cured if it's treated on time.

One dose of BCG vaccine can avoid life-threatening Tuberculosis disease.
