Life with drug-resistant TB in a Romanian hospital
Two young Romanian women, Nicoletta and Amalia, talk about what it is like to have TB in Romania. They are in an isolation ward in a hospital in the capital, Bucharest.
Nicoletta, 28, first caught the disease when she was 19. She was then cured, but was infected again, this time with the more serious multiple drug-resistant strain.
Amalia first got the illness when she was six, was also cured, and then when she was 14 she went against her mother's advice and spent New Year's Eve partying in the street. She caught a bad cold that turned into MDR TB as well.
They spoke to BBC Radio 4's Crossing Continents about their experiences in Romanian hospitals, and their hopes for the future.
