The Antibiotice Company supports the campaign „End tuberculosis. Now and forever!”
In 2017 135 years are commemorated since the announcement made in 1882 by dr. Robert Koch about the discovery of the TB bacillus. The research that followed paved the way to the diagnosis and treatment of this disease, until then considered to be incurable.
The Antibiotice Company supports the information campaigns organized on the occasion of the World Tuberculosis Day by the TB Unit within the Pneumology Hospital of Iasi, in collaboration with the Public Health Department of Iasi, through the Health Promotion Service and the “Grigore T. Popa” University of Medicine and Pharmacy of Iasi.
Thus, on March 24, in honor of the World Tuberculosis Day, a flash mob was conducted on the esplanade in front of the “Grigore T. Popa” University of Medicine and Pharmacy of Iasi – a way to draw attention to the fact that tuberculosis is a public health priority and it is important that all partners involved in the fight against this disease should join forces in order for this treatable disease to be eradicated.
„ The mission of the Antibiotice Company, as the main manufacturer of generic drugs in Romania, is to produce affordable drugs as a means of health care for patients, physicians and pharmacists. We always strive for the benefit of those who need our support, including the partnership to eradicate tuberculosis in Romania. We are partners in the National Program for Tuberculosis Control and the Romanian Ministry of Health by providing the full range of anti-tuberculous essential medicinal products (considered to be first line drugs) and certain medicines intended for the treatment of multi drug resistant (MDR) tuberculosis (second line drugs), as our company is the first European WHO pre-qualified manufacturer for essential anti-TB range drugs “said Mrs. Mihaela Moşneguţu, Medical Director with the Antibiotice Company.
