What is Tuberculosis ?
Can I Recover from Tuberculosis ?
YES, you will get better if you...
- take your pills the way your doctor tells you. Do not miss any pills.
- continue to take your pills, even when you feel better.
The majority of people who have TB are treated at home. The medicine is taken for a long time because it takes months to completely destroy the TB bacteria. In some communities, tuberculosis medicine is delivered to your home by a community health worker or a nursea community health worker or a nurse delivers tuberculosis medicine to your home. This is done through a program called DOT (Directly Observed Therapy).
