Raising awareness about the TB programs run by MSF/Doctors Without Borders Team in South Africa is part of what we have been doing over the past 2 years.
One of the patient we met was Phumeza. Here is her story: www.youtube.com/watch?v=CD1uLtl_eOA
Phumeza Tisile lost her hearing from one of the drugs she took during a harrowing extensively drug-resistant TB treatment. Despite her deafness, she fought to improve DR-TB treatment for thousands of others by becoming DR-TB treatment activist, so that TB sufferers won’t have to lose their hearing just to survive.
Today, Phumeza has a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to get her hearing back with cochlear implants. Join ‘Friends of Phumeza’ and help this remarkable young woman get her hearing back.
