Now over half a century since it was formed, SANTA continues its fight against TB but with a new emphasis.

Volunteers in SANTA branches around the country are helping TB sufferers in their communities by making sure that they take TB drugs. These drugs are very powerful and will make TB sufferers better but if they are not taken correctly or if patients stop taking them before they should, the drugs become useless against the powerful TB germ
