You have TB infection (a type of TB)

Resource Properties

Abstract:

This two-page handout uses text and illustrations to educate people who have tested positive for latent tuberculosis (TB) infection about the importance of accepting treatment. It explains that though someone with TB infection does not feel sick and cannot spread it to others, they must take medicine to prevent it from turning into TB disease. The document describes TB disease symptoms, and clarifies that it can be spread to others.

The Massachusetts Department of Public Health (MDPH) Division of Global Populations and Infectious Disease field-tested this health information material with refugees and immigrants.
