South Korean foundations set TB aid in Mongolia

SEOUL, Sept. 22 (Yonhap) — South Korea’s national tuberculosis association and two other foundations have begun a partnership program in Mongolia aimed at fighting and treating the pulmonary disease.
The Korean National Tuberculosis Association, the Chung Mong-Koo Foundation, and the Seegene Medical Foundation held a launch ceremony at the Mongolian University of Science and Technology in the country’s capitol Ulaanbaatar on Monday.
“STOP-TB Partnership Korea,” established in December 2012, is aimed at eliminating TB as a public health problem. Its partner organizations include the government, nongovernmental and governmental organizations, as well as patient groups.
The three organizations will provide a total of 1.35 billion won (US$1.14 million) annually for state-of-the-art X-rays to detect TB infections and to coordinate the provision of anti-TB medication to the community.
Also, local medical personnel will be sent to Mongolia to train medical doctors and researchers there for TB treatment and prevention.
Mongolia is one of seven countries with a high prevalence of TB in the Western Pacific region, with the mortality rate for TB at 7.2 people per 100,000.
