To mark World Tuberculosis Day, which falls on March 24 each year, the World Vision Foundation of Thailand (WVFT) is holding the "Happy TB-Free Friday" event to raise awareness about the need to prevent, detect and cure the disease.
Being held today from 10am to 3pm at the WVFT's office on Sukhumvit Soi 63, the event aims to inform the public that TB is curable if detected early, diagnosed correctly and medicated continuously. Participants can learn how to curb the communicable disease through an exhibition and a talk by Dr Yuthichai Kasetjaroen.
There are also free health check-ups by the medical team from Health Centre 21 Wat That Thong, as well as mobile chest X-ray service from Bang Pai Hospital.
