Tuberculosis

Tuberculosis can be prevented, treated, and cured

Tuberculosis (TB) is a disease caused by germs that are spread from person to person through the air. TB usually affects the lungs, but it can also affect other parts of the body, such as the brain, the kidneys, or the spine.  A person with TB can die if they do not get treatment.
