Kabale University Embraces Live TB Free Campaign



The University Live TB Free Campaign, an initiative aimed at eradicating tuberculosis (TB) in Uganda, made a significant stop on Friday at Kabale University.

Originating from Kumi University and recently hosted by the Islamic University in Uganda (IUIU) Mbale Campus, the campaign has garnered substantial momentum in its mission to raise awareness and mobilize action against TB.

The event at Kabale University witnessed an enthusiastic turnout from students, faculty, and local community members. Reflectors, TB fact sheets, and bags were distributed throughout the day, ensuring participants left with valuable resources to help spread the campaign’s crucial messages.

Highlighting the importance of the initiative, speakers emphasized self-reflection and the acceleration of efforts by the National Tuberculosis and Leprosy Program (NTLP) to combat the TB epidemic. The campaign aligns with Uganda’s ambitious goal to end TB by 2030, a priority supported strongly by the government and the Ministry of Health (MOH).

“Ending TB by 2030 is a critical objective for our nation,” said a representative from the MOH.

“We are committed to steering all stakeholders towards achieving this goal and fulfilling our international commitments. The University Live TB Free Campaign plays a vital role in this collective effort.”

The campaign continued its journey at Bishop Stuart University on Saturday, where it aimed to further its reach and impact. The campaign’s proactive approach and the distribution of educational materials underscore its dedication to eliminating TB in Uganda.
