A new Stop TB Partnership video highlights the limited knowledge people have about TB, especially in developed countries.
The video takes a novel approach. Although TB is one of the deadliest diseases, people have forgotten about it, quite possibly because it’s been around for so long. So what if it was given a new name, like ILD — infectious lung disease?
The producers asked people on the streets of London what they thought about ILD. Most were surprised to learn about the high level of global infection. They were even more surprised to learn that ILD is in fact TB, and that it is still very much present today.
