This six-panel brochure educates people about active tuberculosis (TB) disease. It explains the difference between latent (inactive) TB infection and active TB disease, which are the two stages of TB. It discusses skin and blood tests for TB and treatment through Direct Observed Therapy (DOT), as well as guidelines those with TB can follow to get well and stop the disease from spreading, clarifying how TB cannot be spread. It provides a list of TB medications and side effects that some people experience, advising that those taking Isoniazid (INH) should avoid drinking alcohol.
