Tuberculosis kills about two million people a year. The international campaign called Stop TB says this lung dease kills more men than women in most of the world. Yet it says tuberculosis kills more women than all pregnancy related disorders combined. And in some cultures, women who get TB face additional problems. They may not be able to leave their families or their jobs to go to a health center that is far away. They may be required to have their husband, father, or brother take them for care. They may also have to depend on men to get them medicine. Women often get Tb during their productive years. They are having babies, caring for their families, and often working in paid jobs. Most women who die of tuberculosis are between the ages of fifteen and forty-four. Often they die for lack of treament or because of poor treament.
