Witkoppen Community Advisory Board (CAB) executive member Nkululeko Masuku took part in a clinical trial to test new and better treatments for TB. He made a full recovery, supported by the professional team at the Clinical HIV Research Unit. Watch this short video here about how he battled and overcame TB, despite losing his brother to the illness.
If you think you may have TB, get in touch with us and we will help you get tested, it is an easy test. Then, we will assist you in getting onto a clinical trial that uses new and better medicines to help people recover. Or, we can help you get to your closet healthcare facility to ensure you get onto the right medicines so you can heal and reclaim your health. Taking your medicine every day is essential.
And remember, HIV-positive people and those with tuberculosis who are not on treatment will be at higher risk of worse outcomes if they contract the coronavirus.
