Tuberculosis control centre in Aleppo is up and running again

Syria, Sep 27 (UNI) The only tuberculosis (TB) control centre in Aleppo governorate is ready to open its doors again.
Damages sustained during the conflict in 2016 forced the centre to close, leaving over 1,000 tuberculosis patients without access to life-saving treatment. Extensive renovations, made possible by a generous donation from the Government of Japan, have allowed the centre to reopen its doors to TB patients in Aleppo and other parts of northern Syria.
The rehabilitation of the TB control centre in Aleppo is timely. Rates of tuberculosis in Syria are increasing, and recent figures show that one third of all TB cases in the country are found in the Aleppo governorate. Lack of access to health care services, poverty and severe overcrowding create conditions ripe for the spread of the disease.
