Take TB seriously

Let me start by welcoming all of you from different districts to our district here of Gulu (applause). You are most welcome. Since we are actually concluding this meeting early enough, I still invite you to remain and to look around the beauty of Gulu District.

I am very happy that we have done commendable work from morning to now. What we have done here is really quality and great work. I want to thank all of you very, very much.

This is a workshop where I observed that people did not move out. I always go for meetings like this, people move out. You find that may be we started with 30 people, by the time of winding up there would be only 15 or so. But here we remained and we were committed (applause). Everybody was committed. I wish we can always remain committed in whatever we do, the way we have been committed here. I must thank you very much.

The administrators came out straight forward with issues around the financing of TB services. They were straight to the point. They were focused in what they had to recommend. They talked like administrators, “this is what we recommend.” They were fearless.
