When Stefan returned to the Netherlands after a brief stay in the US some years ago, he was diagnosed with what he thought was a disease from the past: tuberculosis. Luckily for Stefan, the Netherlands has a very effective tuberculosis control program and he was cured. Watch how tuberculosis changed his life and what can be done to treat this old but still actual disease. This film was commissioned by the Dutch KNCV Tuberculosis Foundation, a national and international centre of expertise for TB control and a medical development organization. Our vision is A World free of Tuberculosis.
