Hi Neil and all,
Tuberculosis is really a curse as the disease is still carrying a series of multiple lssues leading to economcal, social and moral deterioration. In developing countries like ours (Pakistan) it is still stands a stigma including patient himself. While working as a focal person at my institution for HIV-AIDS in assciation with global fund, I find almost every third PLHIV, having T.B., an added burden! That we can not end TB without addressing the social and economic burden of disease.
