Singer Bebe Cool who also doubles as Tuberculosis Ambassador has today met with KCCA Department of Health Officials and Kampala TB stakeholders to discuss curbing Tuberculosis disease in the country.
The singer later released an official statement after today’s meet at City Hall. Here is his full statement;
“This morning, together with my Amber Heart Foundation team, I was part of a very exciting TB stakeholders meeting which comprised of officials from the KCCA Department of health, National TB & Leprosy Program, USAID- TB DEFEAT, Stop TB Uganda, IDI, Kampala Divisions TB Focal persons, research partners, health workers and many more.
This meeting was particularly interesting because for the first time, this meeting resolved that TB awareness will be a priority in the fight to end the scarge and that everyone was prepared to adapt new and creative ways of dealing with communication about TB issues that range from fighting stigma to encouraging people with symptoms to freely go for testing as well as encouraging those on treatment to finish it. Every stakeholder in this meeting looked forward to engaging with my fans at the Tondeka Ekiwatule show scheduled on 26th December to offer free screening on site.
This was one of the many stakeholder meetings we intend to hold in a bid to add to the already great work that our health workers are doing to fight TB. #TBREACH #EndTbug,” Bebe Cool said.
