World Tuberculosis Day is observed on 24th March each year with the aim of spreading public awareness about the global epidemic of Tuberculosis and efforts to eliminate the disease.

The theme of World Tuberculosis Day 2021 is ’The Clock is Ticking’. The theme has been chosen as it ‘conveys the sense that the world is running out of time to act on the commitments to end TB made by global leaders’.

In his message, Minister Ngamije said that Rwanda expended much effort to take care of Tuberculosis patients amidst Covid-19.

He explained that workers from all health facilities have been equipped with modern equipment for the treatment of Tuberculosis.

Among others, the country has decentralized health services whereby patients receive drugs for free until they recover.

Rwanda has also reinforced the capacity of community health workers with a view to completely eradicate Tuberculosis by 2035.

On World Tuberculosis Day, Mico The Best staged a virtual concert featuring performance by renowned rapper Riderman.
