The Ghanaian Times makes a clarion call for the eradication of Tuberculosis. It refers to a recent revelation by Head of the Chest Unit of the Korle Bu Teaching Hospital, Dr. Jane Afriyie Mensah who says TB is becoming a serious health hazard in Ghana. The Times is worried that the target of eradicating TB by 2030 in line with the SDGs seem to be unattainable since according to the doctor, 30 to 40 cases of TB are recorded by the hospital daily.
