“On the Move against Tuberculosis, Innovate to Accelerate Action” – forms the theme of World Tuberculosis Day 2010. The theme underlines the worldwide plan to Stop TB with better efforts and innovative ways in order to achieve the millimume development goal 2006-2015 targets. Though considerable achievements have been made, evidence shows that we need to speed up our efforts to achieve better results. The theme of Innovation calls for a different way of thinking, as well as to imbibe and inculcate the experiences of successful TB campaigns around the world.
The success of the Global Plan to Stop TB 2006-2015 hinges on the cooperation of family members of victims, healthcare providers, and patients themselves to ensure that treatment is continued diligently for the stipulated period. If the objectives of the Stop TB 2006-2015 are met, it can save the lives of 14 million people and enable treatment to 50 million people. We need to support the efforts of this worldwide network by putting our hands together to obliterate the scourge that still exists like a ticking time bomb amongst us.
