Global health reporting fail – tuberculosis

TB

And I read another article covering global health that is somewhat biased (chrmm chrmm). I’m talking about Tulip Mazumdar’s article on multi-drug resistant TB :

Global resistance to TB drugs is ‘ticking time bomb’

We have the usual suspects:

-an alarmist title

-the hopeless situation of the poor (yet not to forget their wisdom)

-the non or mal-functioning government / unorganised systems (they can’t sort any situation without our help, obviously!)

and interestingly:

-“TB is very clever because it kills you very slowly. And while it’s killing you very slowly you’re walking around spreading it” – the silent killer? When will be talking about TB stigma?
