That’s the number of lives that have been changed since starting our unique Tuberculosis Detection Program in Tanzania.
Thanks to our detection rats, 2,500 patients have been correctly diagnosed with Tuberculosis – after wrongly been told they were healthy – and are now able to begin life-saving treatment.
APOPO has begun preparations to replicate these results in Mozambique. We’re training HeroRATs in Tanzania to be sent to Maputo, Mozambique’s capital, in four months time.
But before they can get to work, we need your help.
Foundations must be laid, plumbing must be installed, roofing must be built, and electricity must be switched on before our rats can welcome themselves home in a brand-new, state-of-the-art TB Detection Facility. With your help, we can build this together.
