I'm from Chudniv, Ukraine. Before I was diagnosed, I worked as a shop assistant. When I was first diagnosed with TB, I had nearly two years of treatment, but was still not cured because I had an extensively drug-resistant form of the disease (known as XDR-TB). In September 2018, MSF began to offer treatment at the TB hospital where I am treated. They are using drugs that are recommended by the World Health Organisation that were previously unavailable in Ukraine. This new treatment gives hope to people like me who have XDR-TB and previously didn't have effective treatment options.
