1/ Yury is the 1st person to complete treatment at @MSF’s #tuberculosis treatment programme in #Belarus. Here's his story in a few tweets ⬇
2/ Yury is celebrating a moment he thought would never arrive: he has been cured of a complicated form of TB #XDRTB
3/ “I thought everything had ended. That everybody would turn away from me.” Yury learned he was sick with #XDRTB in 2013. #tuberculosis
4/ After a year of trying, doctors found Yury’s 1st attempt at treatment failed. His #XDRTB was resistant to the meds available at the time.
5/ “My doctors told me – this is the only chance.” When Yury learned of a new TB treatment program w/ @MSF he agreed to be admitted at once.
6/ “And then it was immediate…I started to improve immediately. I didn’t feel better...but the tests, the X-rays – everybody was surprised!”
7/ “If it wasn’t for this treatment we wouldn’t be speaking here right now.” #XDRTB #bedaquiline
8/ You can read Yury's full story on our website: #tuberculosis #bedaquiline
