World Tuberculosis Day 2016

World Tuberculosis Day 2016 was celebrated in Lahore. This event was organized to bring people together and raise awareness regarding this deadly disease. The provincial TB Control Program actively participated in a street theater show, which was attended by school children. It was indeed a very welcoming and smart gesture to make young minds get involved in this awareness show. Obviously, it is very difficult to engage kids in this serious cause. Understanding risks and consequences of tuberculosis are still a very difficult task for them. Nevertheless, making them enjoy theater or puppet shows make them relate to the seriousness of the issue their way.

In this event, there was a free camp to that offered free chest examination to all the visitors coming. It made visitors realize that how important it is for them to have a regular chest examination so that they do not stay unaware of their internal chest problems. This is how tuberculosis prevails in one’s body.

According to the medical experts present at the event, a lot of people in Pakistan do not even know that tuberculosis can be cured. In addition, most of the tuberculosis patients develop this disease due to living in poor hygiene conditions. People, who live in poorly-ventilated homes, are also infected with the disease much more than others. Tuberculosis is a communicable disease, which makes it so easier to infect. People, who smoke, automatically develop a high risk of being infected. Leaving tuberculosis treatment and not taking proper medications can make this disease become fatal for the patient.
