Western Cape MEC of Health Nomafrench Mbombo will today embark on a TB awareness campaign at Pollsmoor Maximum Security Prison.

Last week was Tuesday was World TB Day with the national theme being “Ending South Africa’s TB epidemic: Accelerating our response in key populations.

MEC Mbombo said it is important to create awareness about the TB epidemic.

Ministerial Spokesperson Siviwe Gwarube said so part of the strategy in fighting the spread of TB is getting those who are infected onto treatment plans as quickly as possible.

Gwarube said this initiative is a partnership between an NGO that we work very closely with called TB Care Association and the Department of Correctional Services which with whom we have an agreement to supply medical expertise and our medical facilities to inmates in correctional facilities.
