TB SYMPOSIUM - Closing remarks by Dr Philip Du Cros


Now, I have had the pleasure of being in Uzbekistan, this is my third time and I have also visited Tajikistan. And as I look back over the years, I see that there has been a lot of work done. As we heard from Dr Tsogt and others with the scale up of DOTS and some work on starting pilot programs we've seen some mortality rates reduced in this region. But also as we heard from many speakers, this is obviously not enough and as we stand here today, the targets set by WHO are not being met in this region like in many many countries in the world.
