World TB Day 2015 Tuberculosis remains a major health problem.It is a nasty disease that can affect all ages and commonly leads to months of severe coughing, with night sweats, weight loss,.disability and death. The good news is that if found it can be treated, and if treated for months with multiple anti-tuberculous medicines it can be cured.It requires meticulous contact tracing and follow up of cases.

Murambinda has benefited greatly from the help and support of TBAlert a UK charity. It helped decentralise TB detection and treatment from Murambinda Mission Hospital to  rural clinics. Sadly TBALert is unable to continue to support work at Murambinda. THis will lead to extra strain on the hospital’s staff.

Please do what you can to donate to Murambinda continue the struggle against TB..
