Time to shill

Today is World Tuberculosis Day. Why not celebrate by contracting tuberculosis? Or by giving someone you love the gift of tuberculosis?

Seriously, TB is a serious problem and getting more so. Not so much in North America and Europe, but in Southeast Asia and Africa, there are in excess of 5.5 million cases. It's particularly bad in Africa, where the high rate of HIV speeds the spread of the disease and makes it far more deadly. And drug-resistant TB is on the rise all over the world. The Stop TB Partnership is doing what they can to fight the disease, but it's an uphill battle. They could use your help.
