KIKAC music which helps musicians, in partnership with Rwanda Biomedical Center (RBC) officially demonstrated the Campaign of fighting against tuberculosis and its effects. This campaign aims to raise awareness of Tuberculosis in the community by educating the general population about TB; symptoms, importance of early diagnosis, treatment and prevention. The event took place today on the 23rd January 2020 at RBC Headquarters.

Tuberculosis is a killer disease that is caused by bacteria which is called Mycobacterium tuberculosis; it especially affects those who have weak body protectors, like those with HIV/AIDS, smokers, and people with malnutrition. Everyone has chance to be attacked by this disease especially old people.

Survey showed that 20% of people who has tuberculosis are smokers. This shows that they have high chance to be attacked than those who don’t smoke.

This campaign comes after results that show how this disease is ascending and how it is a big problem to the planet yet it can be cured. The famous musician Mico The Best who is under management of KIKAC Music Label, who came up with this idea gave his hand of participation by programming concerts which is said to reduce this kind of disaster through his career of singing by mobilizing people to fight against this disease.

“The idea came as I was looking for what I can do to help people to be aware of TB and the way of prevention.” Said Mico The Best

Campaign will pass in different parts of the country, by partnership with Mico The Best and other artists from KIKAC Music Label, and Bruce Melody.

Statistics show that tuberculosis has been being fought in Rwanda even though it was tough. By comparing the past 18 years, 38% of disease has been decreased in 2000, and 59% in 2018.
