  3. Why should I become a member?

    As a member, you have access to the Forum and to the patient stories. You can comment on the stories and maybe contact us to publish your own story!

  4. Why is it important to talk about TB?

    TB is one of the infectious diseases that brings a stigma with it. When many people / patients talk about TB and show that TB not only exists among the poorest, we could change the scary face of TB inside our community. TB does not only have a weak face or a poor face, TB has many faces and many languages and can be found everywhere in the world. We want to show that cured TB can help people become strong.
