Together We Will Eliminate Tuberculosis

Date: January 2019

On the eve of the World Tuberculosis Day, which is celebrated annually on March 24, the charity project “Our Health is in Our Hands” of the “Walking to the Health Land” program of the United World Cultures Foundation launched the action “Unite for the Elimination of Tuberculosis”.

The purpose of such action is to spread information about tuberculosis, to unite efforts to eliminate this disease and mobilize people to protect themselves and their relatives from tuberculosis.

The situation with the incidence of tuberculosis in Ukraine is quite difficult. Every year about 30 thousand new cases of tuberculosis are registered in our country, while about 25% of the episodes remain undetected.

Tuberculosis is a disease that can affect everyone, but the highest risk is among those who find themselves in a difficult social situation.

The issue of combating tuberculosis in Ukraine is one of the priorities of the Shevchenko district organization of the Red Cross Society of Ukraine. The main tasks is to provide controlled tuberculosis treatment for people with risk factors in the outpatient phase of treatment, increase adherence to treatment through individual psychosocial support and provide patients with antibiotics and medicines of more than domestic level, which patients often lack money, food packages.

In order to help and protect people from illness, the charity project “Our Health is in Our Hands” of the “Walking to the Health Land” program of the United World Cultures Foundation donated medicine (total amount around 7500 UAH) to the Shevchenko district organization of the Red Cross Society of Ukraine, which will be available to patients among the vulnerable segments of the population of the Shevchenko district of Kyiv.
