A TUBERCULOSIS (TB) patient waits for treatment at Mulago Hospital last week. A report in 2010 indicated that an estimated 27,900 people in Uganda are killed by TB each year ranking the country at 18th of the most affected 22 countries in the world. About 100.000 people get infected with TB annually. In 2007, the World Health Organisation (WHO) asked the Ministry of Health to declare a national emergency due to the increasing TB infections.
