Did you know, Tuberculosis, caused by mycrobacterium tubercolosis, might be the oldest human disease. It affects almost all parts of the body – the bones, the blood, the brain. Highly infectious, it is carried in tiny droplets through the air from person to person (McMillen, 2016).
Any bluster about the death of infectious disease by the hand of biomedicine or hope of living in a world free of pestilence disappeared as it became clear that HIV/AIDs was a new infectious disease thriving in a world thought to be on the verge of being free of such menaces (McMillen, 2016).
TB is the leading cause of death among people with HIV in resource-limited settings. Two other leading causes are cryptococcal meningitis, which is responsible for one in five HIV deaths, and severe bacterial infections. All three are preventable and treatable – if detected early (van Cutsem, 2020).
