This week together with Amber Heart Foundation management team, singer Bebe Cool rolled out three (3) Tuberculosis Screening Cough Desks at Mbarara Regional Referral hospital, Mbarara City Council Health Center IV and Bwizibwera Health Center IV all situated in Mbarara District.
This makes it a total of 16 TB screening cough desks all together in Kampala, Jinja and now Mbarara as per the one year TB REACH project scope.
Amber Heart Foundation’s TB project objective is ‘Finding missing people with TB and link them to medication’.
Many appreciation to Ministry Of Health, NTLP, TB REACH, management of Mbarara Regional Referral hospital, Mbarara City Council Health center IV & Bwizibwera Health Center IV for making this happen today.
Fellow Ugandans in Mbarara please go for TB screening at above mentioned facilities.
Remember TB medication is free in all government health facilities.
