Tuberculosis (TB) remains the leading cause of death in South Africa, and yet it is curable. Why have we not overcome this fatal disease?

 

Doctors Without Borders (MSF) profiles five key strategies on which government and donors should focus their finances and efforts in order to end the deadly TB epidemic. TB is curable, but there are numerous challenges that exist at every level of TB diagnosis and care - not only in South Africa, but around the world, where one person dies every 18 seconds from TB.

Five key barriers to effective TB treatment

  1. Toxic Treatment

  2. Unidentified TB cases

  3. Lack of social support

  4. Centralized drug-resistant TB (DR-TB) care

  5. Stigma

Our Role: In 2017 and 2018 we partnered with MSF and shot a series of videos around treatment of TB across South Africa as well as followed patients in their journey fighting against the disease.
