World TB Day Seminar and Book Launch

A big thank you to everyone who came along on World TB Day (24 March 2016) to celebrate Dr Paul Mason's book launch. 

Professor Warwick Britton from the Centenary Institute spoke about tuberculosis and Dr Paul Mason announced his educational children's book "Phương and An go to the doctor". This book aims to teach children and their families that tuberculosis is treatable. To find out more about this project, please visit:

About Dr Paul Mason: 

"I am an anthropologist and have been working on the problem of tuberculosis in developing countries for the last couple of years. Living in Vietnam and knowing that TB is curable yet people still fail to take their medication due to lack of education inspired me to write this book. The aim of this project is to spread the word that TB is treatable and we hope to save as many lives as possible through the power of education."
