Kenya Welcomes Treating TB Without Injections

The new treatment comes at a time when the country is battling the COVID-19 pandemic, when protecting individuals with lowered immunity or with other diseases is crucial. The new regimen is more effective than the daily shots and drugs that have been used, which sometimes cause hearing loss, according to Health Chief Administrative Secretary, Rashid Aman.
