The documentary on ‘Together Against TB'( যক্ষা থেকে রক্ষা ) on the success story of BRAC and its partner’s activities in Bangladesh to protect tuberculosis (TB) disease. This production has been produced for BRAC Advocacy and Human Rights Departments to use it as a promotional materials.
Tuberculosis is a disease we have known for centuries and it is completely preventable. Yet millions today suffer from it and we still see the faces of misery and pain. Even today, tuberculosis (TB) is the cause of many deaths. Prevalent myths that TB is not curable and death is inevitable still exist.
Over the past 27 years, the NGO has provided access to lifesaving diagnostics and treatment for hundreds of thousands of people. In Bangladesh, as part of a large consortium of NGO partners led by the National TB Program, Ministry of Health and Family Welfare, BRAC covers over 90 million through shasthya shebikas, women working as community health volunteers, providing daily supervised treatment (DOTS) to almost 100,000 patients with a 92% cure rate.
