TB or Not TB? 1 (Tuberculosis and AIDS)

TB or Not TB?  1 (Tuberculosis and AIDS)

While Tuberculosis, TB, can affect old, young, rich, poor, it's more common in developing countries. And though the world started the 20th century with TB rates declining, the 21st century sees the TB death rate rising. This two-part program reports on this serious increase in TB worldwide and looks at other fatal diseases like AIDS, which helps TB in its claim on human life. Although we know what causes TB, a germ called Mycobacterium tuberculosis, we don't understand why some people develop the disease, while others don't, even if they've been infected. In Part 1, to widen our understanding of the mysteries of TB, we look at highly infected areas, including disadvantaged areas, and meet patients with TB.
