This documentary short film tells the stories of three people deeply affected by DM-TB--a dual epidemic on the rise worldwide. Amitabh, Kavita and Vijay are three DM-TB patients living in rural Allahabad, India. We meet the three as they're receiving treatment for both diseases. Each is treated by Dr. Tariq Mahmood, a DM-TB specialist working on the front lines, caring for people living with DM-TB.
Objective: To increase awareness of the co-epidemic of tuberculosis and diabetes mellitus for health practitioners, public health officials, and the general public--especially those living in countries most heavily affected.
