TB Stories

People all over the world are using photos, videos, voice recordings and written stories to share about TB as part of their lives.

Real-life TB Stories

We can all learn from the stories of those who have gone through TB diagnosis, treatment and recovery. Their stories help us better understand what it is like to have TB and how family, friends, communities and health care providers can support this journey.
