TB & AIDS in Africa

6 06 2007

There has been an excessive amount of news coverage this last week about the man who had a drug resistant form of TB and who made a couple of transatlantic flights.

The one thing I did learn though is that while TB is all but eradicated in the United States; in Africa it is the leading cause of death among those infected with HIV/AIDS.

I don’t know what I have to say about that that already hasn’t been said.

Just an interesting FYI though.

If you dig the show House, there’s a fine episode in the second season that deals with this very issue.
