WHO declared TB a global emergency in 1993. Since then efforts have been made to expand partnerships and bring all stakeholders on board in order to control this disease more effectively. The economic conditions correlate with new cases of TB.
WHO estimates that eight million people are infected with TB every year, out of those 95% live in developing countries. An estimated 3 million people die due to TB every year.

TB has been prevalent in Pakistan and unfortunately it has been one of the neglected health areas in the past.
Pakistan ranks 6th amongst the countries with a highest burden of TB in the world. Pakistan contributes about 44% of tuberculosis burden in the Eastern Mediterranean Region.
According to WHO, the incidence of sputum positive TB cases in Pakistan is 80/100,000 per year and for all types it is 177/100,000.
TB is responsible for 5.1 percent of the total national disease burden in Pakistan. The impact of TB on socio economic status is substantial.

We are enthusiastic to intervene in TB with in our limited resources. In fact, there is lack of awareness as wel. We have been raising awareness through volunteer doctor, conducting session in the remote areas but still there is immense need to work.
