Tuberculosis, considered as an illness, can affect any part of the body, but usually the lungs. It often occurs and creates around 10 thousand a year in the country. In La Pampa there are 40 and 50 cases.
It is notifiable and, whenever a diagnosis is made, the medical treatment must be notified to the provincial health authority.

The Director of the Tuberculosis Program, Director of the Epidemiology Department, Patricia Estrella, spoke with Alejandra Corral and Claudia Avagnale.
Star confirmed that it is a case more. "We are working in an articulated way with the organization. We talked to the staff, to the people we studied, to the treatment and to the well-adjusted person. Our supervision is supervised, we are studying the studies with more than four hours, you can not isolate the patient's contacts You can go to work, "he explained.
The so-called "Supervised Treatment" is applied to the province for several years, which means that patients must go to a health center for the Public Healthcare Center to take their medication for staff. It works as a strict control mechanism for targeted treatment of the patient and for the treatment of this type as a contact, which helps to cut the transmission chain.
