World Tuberculosis (TB) Day | 世界防治結核病日

Public Health News from Undergraduate Alumni Association

【Public Health & Our Community】 

各位校友及友好:


世界衞生組織將每年的3月24日定為「世界防治結核病日」,以喚起公眾對結核病流行的關注。世界衞生組織推算至今全球每天仍有近3萬人感染結核病,並造成超過4000人死亡。儘管香港作為高度發展地區,衞生防護中心在2020年亦錄得近3700宗結核病個案。


今年世界防治結核病日的主題是「時不我待」,表示實現終結結核病流行的努力已刻不容緩,特別是在新型肺炎肆虐的情況下,全球防治結核病的工作已受影響。校友會邀請各位持續關注結核病流行,為終結結核病流行盡一分力。有關世界防治結核病日,詳情可參見世界衞生組織專題網頁:https://www.who.int/campaigns/world-tb-day/world-tb-day-2021


  祝

身體健康

Dear alumni and friends,


The World Health Organization (WHO) has annually commemorated World Tuberculosis (TB) Day on 24th March to raise public awareness on the global TB epidemic. WHO estimates that every day there have been nearly 30,000 people infected by TB globally, and leading to more than 4,000 deaths. As a highly developed region, nearly 3,700 TB cases were also recorded in Hong Kong according to the Centre of Health Protection in the year of 2020.


The theme of World TB Day 2021 is “The Clock is Ticking”, highlighting the urgent need to end the TB epidemic, especially when the global efforts have been seriously affected by COVID-19 pandemic. The Alumni Association invites every one of you to concern the issue and participate in the efforts to end the TB epidemic. For the details of World TB Day, please refer to the campaign webpage of WHO: https://www.who.int/campaigns/world-tb-day/world-tb-day-2021
