TB Defender's Guide: 10 Powerful Tips for Prevention and Well-being!

Vaccination (BCG)

Ensure that you and your children receive the Bacillus Calmette-Guérin (BCG) vaccine to protect against severe forms of TB.

Know Your TB Status

If you are at risk or have been exposed to TB, get regular screenings and tests to detect the infection early.


Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue or elbow when coughing or sneezing to prevent the spread of TB bacteria.

Ventilation in Living Spaces

Ensure good ventilation in indoor spaces to reduce the concentration of airborne bacteria.

Use Masks

If you have active TB or are in close contact with someone who does, wearing a mask can help prevent the spread of the bacteria.

Avoid Overcrowded Places

Limit exposure to crowded and poorly ventilated environments, especially if TB rates are high in your area.

Maintain a Healthy Lifestyle

A well-balanced diet, regular exercise, and adequate sleep contribute to a strong immune system, reducing susceptibility to TB.

Seek Prompt Medical Attention

If you experience symptoms like persistent cough, weight loss, or fever, seek medical advice promptly for early diagnosis and treatment.

Complete TB Treatment

If diagnosed with TB, adhere to the prescribed treatment regimen to ensure complete recovery and prevent the development of drug-resistant strains.
