Your TB Patient-Survivor Community
A TB diagnosis can be difficult one to get. Former and current TB patients and family members are supporting each other through these organizations, and some are speaking out about TB to educate their communities and policy makers to prevent more TB. Connect through these organizations to get support from others who’ve been where you are now.
