Regional Dialogue Workshop- "Strengthening the Tuberculosis Laboratory Network" Project
11 de Diciembre
On November 3-4, 2015, the Regional Dialogue Workshop for the project "Strengthening the TB Laboratory Network in the Americas Region" convened with the presence of twenty countries. This event was organized by #ORASCONHU in collaboration with the World Health Organization/Pan-American Health Organization and the Global Fund for the Fight Against AIDS, TB, and Malaria.
The idea of dedicating a day to the fight against AIDS began with the World Summit of Health Secretaries in 1988 as a part of AIDS prevention programs. Since then, the day has been observed by governments, international organizations, and social services throughout the world. The date December 1 was selected because the first case of AIDS was diagnosed on that day in 1981.
November 30, 2015- ASPAT received a visit from the Loreto Regional Activist Cecilio Sangama, an activist with more than 6 years of experience in the fight against stigma and discrimination resulting from TB.
