Screen 200 TB samples


Give the gift of Tuberculosis detection by supporting the work of APOPO and the HeroRats in sniffing out the deadly disease that kills 1.5 million people every year.

In 2014, 9 million people fell ill with TB, but the disease is preventable and curable.

APOPO’s Tuberculosis detection rats screen tens of thousands of sputum samples collected from TB clinics in Dar es Salaam every year. As a result, many TB patients which were first diagnosed as negative are now identified and can be cured.
