It takes $ 120 million per year to equalize public health problem with tuberculosis

The World Health Organization (WHO) announced, on Tuesday (01), the numbers of new campaign that aims to end child deaths caused by tuberculosis.

According to the agency, are needed U.S. $ 120 million (over U.S. $ 250 million) per year to equalize public health problem worldwide.

According to the UN agency, the new plan is based on the most recent data on the disease, and identifies clear actions to prevent child deaths.

The "Guide for tuberculosis in children: towards zero deaths," highlights the need to organize training on the disease in infancy, while incorporating ongoing education about TB and TB / HIV.

Globally, the roadmap recommends 10 actions that take into account the needs of children and adolescents in the research and development of policies and practices regarding tuberculosis clinics.

The document also calls for improvements in data collection and in preventive measures, in addition to highlighting the need for better training of health professionals.

<b> Nearly 80,000 deaths per year </ b>

Every day, 200 children under 15 die unnecessarily because of a disease that could be prevented and cured. In total, 74 000 deaths are recorded every year.

According to WHO about one in 10 cases of tuberculosis worldwide occur among children, but it is considered that the number could be even higher because many children simply are not diagnosed.

South Africa, Ethiopia and the Democratic Republic of Congo are among the seven countries that together represent 64% of the global burden of childhood tuberculosis. In the group, are also India, Indonesia, Pakistan and Bangladesh.
