On March 24, 2015, in recognition of World TB Day, Embassy Manila’s U. S. Agency for International Development (USAID) will honor the Philippines Department of Health (DOH) for its achievements in the global fight against tuberculosis (TB), which annually kills 27,000 Filipinos and 1.5 million people worldwide. Philippine Ambassador to the United States Jose Cuisia Jr. will accept the TB Champion award on behalf of DOH at a ceremony to be held in Washington, D.C.

At a local counterpart awarding ceremony celebrating World TB Day on March 23, 2015 in Batangas City, DOH Secretary Janette Garin accepted the TB Champion award from USAID/Philippines Mission Director Gloria D. Steele.

“The United States is a proud member of the global partnership to eliminate this disease, improving access to life-saving drugs and giving people the chance to live healthy, productive lives,” remarked Director Steele.
