Present times have seen many a disease make the most human being and of them have been one, that is not just infectious but is also, a silent killer. Tuberculosis, when detected early on, can be treated effectively but when left untreated, mortality rates have been quite high for this disease.
It has often been seen that tuberculosis patients have been not just stigmatized because of the infectious nature of the disease but also have been seen to deal with isolation and emotional distress, as friends and family and even the local communities, shun their company.
