Lilly: Announcing the 2015 REACH Lilly MDR TB Partnership Media Award Winners
Today’s guest blog comes from Sunita Prasad, senior manager for Lilly’s MDR-TB Partnership in India.
Tuberculosis (TB) continues to pose a monumental global health challenge. The disease affected nine million people in 2013, and claimed 1.5 million lives. In India, 1,000 people die of TB daily, though the disease is fully curable.
Journalists have a vital role to play in raising awareness and turning the tide on TB—and Lilly has educated, trained, and partnered with more than 400 journalists worldwide to increase and improve media coverage of TB and deadly multidrug-resistant TB (MDR-TB).
