Decoding the spread of TB and its cures

In this first episode of ‘Gasping for Breath’, India’s first podcast on state of tuberculosis and it’s treatment in India, we go back in time to understand the emergence of this deadly disease. Menaka Rao, senior health journalist and host will also tell you about the wild myths surrounding the disease. In the early 19th century, the only recourse was staying in a sanatorium for years or more. Then the cause of the disease was found – a tiny bacteria and the focus of doctors turned towards killing the bacteria. But do medicines and technology alone help control the disease.
