Why is KNCV Tuberculosis Foundation also known as KNCV TB Plus?

Tuberculosis (TB) does not exist in isolation. Persons with TB are vulnerable to a range of infectious diseases and are affected by socio-economic determinants of health. Together we can end TB. The goal of KNCV TB Plus is to use all our comprehensive expertise, our best practices, and drive health care innovations to work towards global health for all in a world free of TB and other related infectious diseases. Mustapha Gidado, Executive Director of KNCV TB Plus, explains further in this video.
