Combating the TB scourge in Kenya

“I thought I understood TB well. However it was clear as the training progressed that there was so much I needed to be doing for my patients. In fact, I realized I had failed to properly diagnose patients with TB infection,” said James.

Before the training, James had the understanding that TB mostly affected those with HIV infection. He quickly learnt that this was not correct because the available data indicated the majority of TB patients were not HIV infected.

“If I had seen the patient before the training, I would probably not have made the correct decision,” James notes.
