Tuberculosis In Cambodia
Phnom Penh, Cambodia
By U.S. Editor
14 Jul 2013

Cambodia is one of the 22 countries most affected by tuberculosis in the world. The country ranks second in the prevalence rate of tuberculosis, after South Africa. To get cured, the patients have to go through a stringent six-months daily-dose therapy of multiple medications. Often, these medications cause severe side-effects and co-infections with other diseases like HIV/AIDS, Cancer, etc make the lives of patients impossible due to drug interactions. This leads to lack of compliance which may result in multi-drug resistant TB, a lethal form of the disease and almost a death warrant. Once infected, the cure from this disease under the public sector of such a country is not a small hope to live by. Therefore, there is a stark dejection in the lives of people suffering from tuberculosis.

The Dead Cities of Syria
Idlib, Syria
By Transterra Editor
16 Mar 2013

Dead cities in Syria are the remains of the Roman and Byzantine settlements in the north-western of Syria. In 2012, during the civil war in Syria, more than one million people had to abandon their homes and sought safe shelter. They came to the places where the Ancients buried their dead. In places such as Shansharah, Robia, Serjilla the living found shelter within the dead in ruins and tombs, often underground. They are exposed to cold, and are often wet, hungry, and vulnerable to disease.
Many who fled from their homes, couldn't take much with them, the heaviest luggage they carry is their memories filled with the images, sounds and smells of an ongoing war. Although they hide, danger accompanies them each day with the constant risk of shelling coupled with gnawing hunger. The risk of contracting Tuberculosis or Leishmaniasis is an everyday reality.
