Introduction

TB is a condition that is spread among people through the air. It mostly affects the lungs even though it may also damage other parts of the body such as the spine, kidney, and brain. This dangerous disease may cause death in case a person fails to seek appropriate medication.

Causes and transmission

TB is caused by mycobacterium tuberculosis, a bacterium that finds its way into the air when an infected person sneezes, coughs, sings or speaks. The bacteria exist for several hours in the air, whereby the period of existence depends on the environment. When a person inhales air that contains the pathogen, they are at risk of getting infected (Centre of Disease Control and Prevention 2).

Symptoms, severity and effects

Once a person develops an active TB infection, symptoms such as fever, cough, weight loss and night sweats, are experienced for many months. In case of delay in treatment, transmission of bacteriaoccurs, such that an infected person can spread the disease to 10 to 15 other people within a year. According to the World Health Organization, TB is one of the 10 leading cause of death around the world. In 2014, 1.8 million TB-caused deaths occurred, which include 0.4 million HIV-positive victims (World Health Organization).

The Population Affected

In the world, about one third of the population is infected with latent Tuberculosis, which means that they harbor the bacteria, but are not ill and are not (yet) capable of transmitting the disease (World Health Organization). In 2015, some 9,557 TB cases were reported in America, a significant increase from previous years (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention 2).

Effect on Economic Conditions

TB’ effect on families is often devastating since it reduces the productivity of the affected persons.  In the United States, about 1.4 to 2.8 billion dollars is lost to the treatment of the disease annually (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention 2). The disease has been a major hindrance to the economic growth of the country due to the massive funds being allocated to treat the infected population as well as the resulting reduction in productivity among ill people (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention 6).

Control and Barriers to Control

The sheer complexity of TB control calls for collaborative efforts of diverse stakeholder groups. It requires the coming together of individual, organizations, as well as institutions particularly in the public health sector. Besides, even non-participants in the health sector have crucial contributions to make in controlling the disease. Of utmost importance, though, is the need to improve the detection of all TB cases. In this regard, the most important participants include clinicians, hospitals, community health centers, professional medical organizations, academic institutions, pharmaceutical industry, and community-based organizations. Barriers to control may be divided into two categories: disease-specific and structural barriers. The main disease-specific barriers comprise diagnostics (for example, the lengthy process of diagnosis), treatment (for example, drug resistance), and treatment (for example, dearth of infection control knowledge and practice. Lastly, the main structural barrier is divided government attention, whereby TB is merely one of the numerous national-priority diseases whose control measures governments have to address.
