Frontal assault on tuberculosis. Interview by Eileen Fursland.


Nurses working with people who have TB in London battle to reduce the stigma attached to the disease. For many patients, TB is just one of many problems they have to contend with. People living in shared accommodation can face homelessness as a result of their infection. In some countries TB is associated with HIV, increasing the stigma patients face. Some patients are given incentives to encourage concordance with treatment.
