Walking the talk: Nigeria declares 2017 the year of "Accelerating TB Case Finding" (post with simple image)

02 February 2017 - Nigeria - In an unprecedented effort to address one of the biggest public health threats in Nigeria, the Honourable Minister of Health for Nigeria, Professor Isaac Adewole declared 2017 as the year of "Accelerating TB Case Finding" in the country. The announcement was made last week at the 59th National Council on Health Meeting, held in Umuahia, Abia State. TB is a major public health problem in Nigeria. Case finding remains a major challenge as despite all the efforts, the programme was only able to notify 15% (90,584) of the estimated TB cases (586,000) in the country in 2015. This shows a huge gap in TB case finding which may continue to widen if these missing cases are not detected. In the last ten years, the country has implemented various interventions to address the challenge of low TB case finding. However, achieving the reduction in TB incidence rate for attainment of the 90-(90)- 90 targets as outlined in the Global Plan to End TB 2016-2020, the End TB Strategy targets, and Sustainable Development Goals by 2030 will be a unreachable if something drastic is not done.
