Making a Difference
Tuberculosis (TB) is an airborne bacterial infection. It can be acquired by breathing contaminated air droplets coughed or sneezed by an infected person. Humans can also get ill with TB by ingesting unpasteurized milk products contaminated with Mycobacterium Bovis.
If untreated, active TB can lead to fatalities. Tuberculosis is highly endemic in Honduras.
