SPMs Enjoin Public vs TB
In line with the celebration of National Tuberculosis (TB) Month this August 1-31, members of the Sangguniang Panlungsod of Bacolod approved the resolution of Councilor Sonya Verdeflor, enjoining all Bacolodnons to internalize the treatment and precaution against tuberculosis.
The observance is aimed at reducing the incidence of Tuberculosis (TB) and TB-related morbidity and mortality in the country.
During this celebration, the public is educated about TB, its causes, treatment, symptoms and prevention.
Verdeflor’s resolution also stated that each year, there are activities planned that encourage governments and health facilities across the world to reach out to communities by creating programs in an attempt to increase awareness about TB. It is very important that people are made aware of all the signs and symptoms of tuberculosis. The TB Awareness Month encourages individuals to participate in the efforts to stop the spread of TB by way of intervention and public knowledge, Verdeflor stressed.*
