TB Proof Project Coordinator & Communication Officer. Dietitian. Bloemfontein.
Growing up in South Africa, I have seen the detrimental impact that TB has on those affected far too many times.
I soon realised that there are many underlying factors associated with TB & so much more research to be done in field. This led me to do further research on the impact that nutritional factors such as food insecurity and hunger have on adult and paediatric TB drug adherence and nutritional status. Furthermore, I enjoy training health workers and medical students on TB Infection control.
TB has resulted in too many deaths, caused too much heartbreak and has stolen the potential of far too many people.
It is time to end TB!
