BINH DINH — The Global Fund to fight AIDS, tuberculosis and malaria has given the central province of Binh Dinh VND6 billion (US$285,700) to fight tuberculosis over the next two years - an increase of more than $100,000 over the previous two years.
More than 2,000 new cases of tuberculosis are detected each year in the province.
The fund calls for the co-oporation from authorities at all levels and the community to prevent and treat the deadly disease. It also aims at improving the capacity of medical workers in six districts and towns in the province, said deputy director of the provincial Department of Health Le Quang Hung.
