Health stigma constrains Romania TB fight

Health stigma attached to the disease and low budget have slowed down the fight to eradicate the disease.

    Romania has the highest case of tuberculosis in Europe in 2012.

    Every year, there are an estimated 1,300 new cases being reported.

    The government is making an effort to educate its citizens and provide medical help to those who are sick.

    But the health stigma attached to the disease and low budget have slowed down the fight to eradicate the disease.
