Vlog | Fighting TB on the streets of Nairobi

Doctor Mark Sherlock is back with another vlog from Nairobi, Kenya, where he's treating patients with drug-resistant tuberculosis (TB).

"They're slowly, slowly breaking down the stigma of TB, so hopefully more and more people will come and get tested," says Mark.

Mark spends a day with the health promotion team, who, along with volunteers from the local community, are working to raise awareness of TB in Nairobi.

Worldwide, TB now causes more deaths than HIV, so encouraging early diagnosis is a key part of the fight against this deadly disease.
