In Jordan, Egyptian-born Shehdeh (right) received medication after being diagnosed with TB. Although TB treatment normally requires a six month course, Shehdeh felt better after three months and decided to stop his treatment. Not long after that he got ill again, this time severely. With treatment and support from community health worker Maria (left), he resumed treatment. Maria monitors his progress through frequent phone calls and home visits to Shehdeh, his wife and youngest child.
