TB Survivors Speak At USAID World TB Day Event

The Center for Global Health Policy’s “Science Speaks” blog summarizes an event hosted by USAID in late March to commemorate World Tuberculosis (TB) Day. The blog includes “brief profiles and pictures of some of the survivors featured in the event ‘Voices of TB.'” Andre Gariseb of Namibia, who was cured of TB in 2009, said at the event, “[TB] is a battle for everybody … As long as we share the same air it becomes everybody’s problem,” according to the blog (Mazzotta, 4/2).
