World TB Day: Shanti's Story

21 Mar 2016

The photofilm tells the story of Shanti, living with MDR-TB and HIV in Mumbai, and had to struggle long and hard to find the treatment that she needs. She was finally referred to Médecins Sans Frontières' clinic in Mumbai and started on treatment, but her disease had progressed very far and Médecins Sans Frontières' medical staff were unable to save her life. Very sadly, she died soon after these photos were taken.
