On Tuesday in Hanoi at the 18th meeting of the International Union Against Tuberculosis and Lung Disease, Vietnamese Deputy Prime Minister Nguyen Thien Nhan said his nation needs more international support to fight TB. Nhan credited the union for helping create more equity in access to health care services and a sense of shared responsibility among nations to combat the disease. About 150,000 Vietnamese – a large number of whom are females in the southern region – are diagnosed with TB each year, according to the World Health Organization.
