The National TB control program has introduced the first-ever child friendly pediatric formulation to treat TB in children.

It has also rolled out shorter treatment regimen for multi-drug resistant TB-(MDR-TB).

Ahead of this year's world TB in Accra, the Manager of the TB Control Program, Dr. Frank Bonsu said the gains made so far can be eroded if the right leadership and commitment are not provided in support of TB control.

TB treatment is free in all Government hospitals across the country.
