Tools Available To Prevent Pediatric Tuberculosis

Huffington Post: The Preventable Disease We Should All Be Fighting Against
Paul Stoffels, chief scientific officer at Johnson & Johnson

“Childhood tuberculosis (TB) is a serious problem that has received inadequate attention, in large part because we simply didn’t know the magnitude of the problem. … This is not acceptable, especially when we have the tools to help prevent such suffering among this vulnerable population. … We can no longer stand idly by as children continue to contract and, in the worst cases, die from this preventable disease. We must do something about it” (9/25).
