World Tuberculosis Day is a worldwide event held on March 24th, 2016. SSU volunteers and Student Social Service hold an educational campaign ‘We choose a healthy future!’. During its implementation the questionnaires for TB self-diagnosis, information folders made by students of Medical Institute and education literature were handed out at the academic buildings of SSU and Medical Institute, and dormitories.

The volunteers of Student Social Service also made wall newspapers containing information about TB statistics in the Sumy region. SSU foreign students also joined the campaign by telling about the existence of this problem at home.

According to the Head of SSU Student Social Service Alina Storozhenko, many people believe that only people from troubled families, the poor and homeless people can get infected with TB, but unfortunately it’s not true. Tuberculosis is a disease that can affect everyone.
