Tubaclosis Control(t.b.)

Tuberclosis is one of the inward killing disease which once you get it,there is no way of get it over your body but it can only be controlled,nowander scientists have it that better you prevent it than now caring it after it has gotten into the body. Many individuals have dying of the disease because the means and ways of controlling it are very expensive. Again it took a long time before the control drug was established. The local NGO group brought in a cheap, affordable to many, control drug. This has helped many many who were yet to be victims of T.B. The only requirement it may need is the keen take of the prescription given. Many are now urged to go for the drug.
