Tuberculosis is developing resistance to almost every drug available, which has lead to fears of an epidemic. In South Africa, health authorities have locked up patients diagnosed with XDR-TB in an effort to stop the disease from spreading. How should the issue be resolved? Can countries balance their need to protect the public from a killer disease with the rights of the individual patients? Survival: The Deadly Combination examines the impact that extremely drug resistant (XDR) is having on people and societies. It deals with some controversial approaches, such as quarantine, to dealing with the illness.

March 24 is World Tuberculosis Day. This film was selected to raise public awareness of tuberculosis and the efforts made to prevent and treat the disease.

This film will be screened at the Lubbock and El Paso campuses, but is also available for checkout by faculty, staff, and students at the other TTUHSC campuses.

Free snacks will be provided!
