About Tuberculosis Tuberculosis (TB) is an airborne disease caused by TB bacteria. It was once considered a disease of the past, but it is still a serious public health threat.

Living With Tuberculosis

Tuberculosis (TB) can affect anyone, anywhere. From the plains of Africa to the mountains of Peru to the cities of Europe and North America, TB is a disease that knows no boundaries. But TB is not a death sentence. Despite the millions of deaths each year, there are stories of hope − people who struggle hard but overcome the disease.

And there are remarkable stories of courage, friendship and bonds that are formed between patients, nurses, social workers, doctors, and many others. At Otsuka, we recognize that fighting TB is more than just treating the disease; it's treating the person. As part of our philosophy of always keeping the patient in mind and focusing on the individual, we have captured a few of the many faces of TB to educate and help inspire others who are, or know someone, affected by TB.
