Faces of the Fight: Zolelwa

Dr. Zolelwa Sifumba of South Africa tells the story of her fight to beat multidrug-resistant tuberculosis. “TB is seen to be a dirty disease that can only infect a certain kind of person. But the truth is that anyone can get TB. The only thing that makes us susceptible to TB is the fact that we breathe. That’s the message I’m pushing: TB is all of our problem because we all breathe.”

People like Zolelwa are the frontline faces of the fight against HIV, tuberculosis and malaria. Join them in stepping up the fight through the Global Fund's Sixth Replenishment this year.
