Tholakele confers with MSF staff
Tholakele, 39, has DR-TB and started treatment in May 2016 at the Moneni National TB Hospital, supported by MSF in central Swaziland. Tholakele lives in Lwandle, some 9.3 miles away from the Moneni TB hospital, where she receives her treatment. Her husband is working in South Africa. For three months, she traveled by herself every day to and from the hospital for her injections, a routine she completed in August 2016. Despite this, she is not yet cured of TB and continues her treatment at home, taking tablets daily.
