"This disease is for heroes. If you can fight this, you can stand anything in this world." Siyabulela Qwaka is the latest patient cured of extensively drug-resistant tuberculosis (XDR-TB) in the Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) project in Khayelitsha, South Africa. His story is an inspiration for patients currently fighting drug-resistant strains of TB. The existing drugs to fight these strains are of limited effectiveness and they produce terrible side effects.
