Welcome to our Tuberculosis (TB)
website. This website is all about the oldest disease known to mankind.
As the world's attention is now focused on the bird flu ravaging
across Asia , another silent killer sweeping across Asia and many
parts of the world such as Africa is lurking within us. This silent
killer kills far more people than the bird flu or Sars does. More
than a million Asians and about 600,000 in Africa are killed yearly
by this killer.
This silent killer is .. TUBERCULOSIS. This disease is as old as
mankind and is the No. 1 infectious killer of adults in the world.
While this disease is relatively subdued in the more developed countries,
the number of people killed in other countries is alarming and mind
Not only that, this disease lurks within us - ready to strike us
when our guards are down even for relatively healthy people. As much
as one third of the world's population harbour dormant TB.
Furthermore drug resistant strains of TB
and a host of other factors have contributed to the rise of this
massive silent killer. Navigate our website to find out more about
this silent killer and its resurgence and why YOU should be concerned.
TB can strike anybody, at any time, anywhere. In the past decade
or so, tuberculosis has been on the rapid rise.
