Organization Reach: International
Organization Description:
Our aim is the exchange between patients and the discussion about our experiences with TB.

We want to be a platform for patients on treatment and for former patients who want to exchange about their experiences with TB.

We want to be a chatroom for patients in isolation.

While others are busy working hard in the fight to develop better drugs and treatment regimes, we want to be a place for patients to get the support and understanding that only other patients can give…

Collectively we can offer great support to each other, and help raise the awareness of TB in our communities, and help remove the stigma this disease has unfortunately associated with it.

We welcome doctors and hospital staff to join us, to help you understand TB from another point of view… to help you have another resource to offer your patients to help them through their experience.

We want to talk about our experiences during treatment and afterwards and make the stay in hospital a little bit better.

We have to talk about TB face to face and give TB a FACE

Declaration

Declaration of interests:
TB can be a very isolating disease. Both because of the need for isolation of patients until their active disease is brought under control, and from the social stigma associated with it.

This website is made to break that cycle of isolation to give us access to others even in our most contagious phase.

It exists to give us a place to talk to people going through the same things, to talk about our difficulties, our successes, and to share with people who understand our fears.
