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.
Decades ago, many believed the fight against infectious diseases had been won. But diseases like HIV-AIDS have emerged and become epidemics. Malaria and tuberculosis still persist, impacting the lives of millions of children worldwide annually. And newer threats like Ebola have taken center stage. Around the world, SAP is developing technology solutions and teaming with organizations to fight these diseases. See how SAP used SAP HANA cloud platform and other innovations to help contain Ebola.
