Truth About TB

TB Alert is the United Kingdom’s national tuberculosis charity. It is the only charity that focuses on TB both in the UK and overseas – in India, Zambia, Zimbabwe and Malawi. TB Alert’s work focuses on: 1) raising public and professional awareness about TB, addressing barriers to treatment, and providing support to patients during their treatment, 2) bringing together statutory health services, voluntary organisations and people affected by TB to plan and deliver better TB services, and 3) advocating for the policies and resources to improve the care of patients and the prevention and control of TB.

Maintained by TB Alert, the Truth About TB website provides information, advice and support about all aspects of TB: from TB symptoms and risks to treatment and recovery – including sources of support to help patients  through their TB journey.  The site contains people’s TB stories; and the answers to questions from others that are concerned about TB.  For professionals, the site contains patient information materials, awareness raising resources and a school information pack: The Truth About TB Website
