TBpeople Philippines are so proud to be part of and collaborate with The Philippine Country Coordinating Mechanism (PCCM) in their efforts to End Tuberculosis (TB) and eliminate it from our country. It’s truly heartwarming to see organizations coming together for such an important cause. On June 20, Ormoc City Mayor Lucy Torres-Gomez further demonstrates their commitment to this advocacy.
Mayor Gomez’s support is crucial in ensuring the success of these initiatives. By recognizing the importance of Ending TB, she is not only contributing to the betterment of her city but also setting an example for other leaders across the nation. We admire her dedication to the sustainability of the health system and her assurance that TB will be addressed as one of the least issues in Ormoc City.
Tuberculosis has been a long-standing public health concern in many countries, including ours. It is a disease that affects millions of people worldwide and causes immense suffering. Therefore, it is incredibly encouraging to witness organizations like TBpeople Philippines and The Philippine Country Coordinating Mechanism working diligently towards its eradication.
We believe that through united efforts and strong leadership, we can indeed achieve the goal of eliminating TB in our country. It is essential for all sectors of society to come together, raise awareness about the disease, improve access to healthcare services, and provide support to those affected by TB. Together, let us work towards a future where no one suffers from this preventable and treatable disease.
