Seventeen-year-old Tatev has multidrug-resistant tuberculosis (MDR-TB) and takes 14 pills every day. The arduous treatment for MDR-TB is psychologically difficult for everyone, but it can be especially hard for someone Tatev's age. In addition to medical treatment, MSF provides her with emotional counseling. "I've forced myself to believe the treatment will work, and that I'll get rid of TB," she says. "That's my dream."
Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) treated nearly 30,000 TB patients in 2013 in 90 projects around the world. Join us and call for urgent action to improve care for DR-TB patients! Sign the MSF petition www.tbpetition.org or go to www.doctorswithoutborders.org for more information.
