It’s true that government of Uganda they don’t focus on TB much and that treatment is inadequate, especially for MDR TB, the type of TB that I have myself. They don’t focus on it at all. Even if you are diagnosed with MDR TB, you have no cure because the Ugandan government cannot afford the treatment, so what can you do? It’s better to commit suicide not to get all this pain.
That is why MSF has come to run this kind of project. Now I know that MDR TB can be cured and I encourage the government to focus on TB, to fight TB together with the Ministry of Health.
