I Need a TB Test that Works for Me!
An MSF mini-site depicting the lives and experiences of people living with tuberculosis & their struggles to get an accurate diagnosis
We’ve brought together the experiences of people with tuberculosis (TB) from Kenya, Georgia and India in trying to get a correct diagnosis of their illness. Their journey towards that goal has been long, frustrating and often chaotic. They, at least, have finally been able to get a correct diagnosis and be put on treatment. Many are not.

He is now awaiting the results of a culture test which will reveal if his treatment is actually working.
