Half of Bangladesh adults are TB carriers: report

Half of the adult population of Bangladesh are TB carriers but most of them are probably not aware of it as the germ remains dormant, a BRAC report said.

BRAC health programme executive Dr Fahim Ahmed Chowdhury however said there is a silver lining that though such large number of people are infected, very few of them carry active germs.

Bangladesh ranks sixth among some 22 countries having the highest number of TB patients in the world. Every year some two million people die of the deadly disease across the world.

This was revealed at a roundtable held on Sunday at the National Press Club jointly organised by Health and Environment Journalists' Forum of Bangladesh (HEJFB), National TB Control Programme and BRAC Health Programme.

Dr Fahim said , "Though the TB identification and recovery rates under the Millennium Development Goal (MDG) are 70 and 85 per cent respectively, in fact 73 and 92 per cents have been actually achieved. But we need to work more intensively on it."
