South Africa: South Africa is Under-Diagnosing TB and Still Needs to Catch Up Post Pandemic

[Right to Care] Ahead of World Tuberculosis (TB) Day tomorrow, Dr Lucy Connell, TB programme lead at health NPO Right to Care , says, “South Africa has one of the highest TB rates in the world. Right to Care supports SA’S theme for World TB Day this year which is ‘Yes! You and I can end TB.’ Great strides have been made identifying people likely to have TB, testing and diagnosing more TB. Yet we are still under-diagnosing TB and this is hampering efforts to meet global targets and end TB by 2030.”
