Next year, it will be 50 years since the National TB Program began in Indonesia and 26 years after the World Health Organization (WHO) declared tuberculosis (TB) a global health emergency.
Nonetheless, TB kills more than 4,400 people worldwide daily — more than malaria and HIV/AIDS combined. Despite free access to TB medications in the country, TB kills 300 Indonesians every day.
