Drug Resistant TB (Kannada)
This programme is based on the problem of Drug Resistant Tuberculosis. It includes feature, jingle, PSA, interview and a celebrity talk with Shivaraj Kumar and B.Suresh. In drug resistant TB bacteria become resistant to some of the most effective anti-TB drugs. One in three people in the world is infected with TB bacteria. Only when the bacteria become active do people become ill with TB. Bacteria become active as a result of anything that can reduce the person’s immunity, such as HIV, advancing age, or some medical conditions.
