March 17, 2014

 
Broyan, an inmate at Yerevan prison in Armenia, takes 13 pills and gets two injections every day for his extensively drug-resistant tuberculosis (XDR-TB). "I am optimistic because I can feel the difference," he says. "I think I will be cured." 
 
Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) treated nearly 30,000 TB patients in 2013 in 90 projects around the world.
