Patient-Survivor Resources

Your TB Patient-Survivor Community


A TB diagnosis can be difficult to receive. Former and current TB survivors are networking to provide each other support, and in some cases speak to their communities and policy makers to prevent more TB. Connect with these groups for additional support for a TB diagnosis and treatment.
