Artiste Bebe Cool has urged Ugandans to take Tuberculosis awareness and sensitisation as a personal responsibility.
Bebe Cool, the tuberculosis ambassador in Uganda, stated that the country will also join the rest of the World on March 24, to celebrate World Tuberculosis Day.
Through his facebook page, Bebe Cool highlighted that over 4,500 people die because of Tuberculosis, and in Uganda alone, over 80,000 new TB cases are annually registered.
Tuberculosis is one of the Immunisable killer diseases in Uganda, but many people tend to dodge its vaccination and checkups.
However, the Gagamel boss states that ‘when people get united and create awareness about this disease, we can make it history in our country.’
“Let us unite and create awareness to END TB by finding the missing TB patients,” Bebe Cool posted.
The Wasibukawa hit maker is so high on his TB Ambassador role, as he was recently invited as a panelist in the High Level African Regional Tuberculosis Summit in Rwanda.
This three day summit was held under the theme ‘Finding All People With TB’ where he shared views on behalf of Uganda on how we can end TB through finding the people living with the disease.
