This is a picture taken at the 2nd TBnet-academy that took place in Chisinau, Moldova, in May 2013. 20 young clinicians, molecular and cellular biologists as well as young epidemiologists had been awarded with a TBnet-fellowship grant allowing them to travel to Moldova and participate in this educational TB-course. The TBnet-academy drew attention to the particular problems of TB control and treatment in high incidence countries by addressing local problems and learning from international and local experts. The participants learned from each other and from their mentors in small study groups with focus on clinical managing, epidemiology, molecular biology, microbiology or immunology. Local experts confronted the participants with their daily problems in the treatment of MDR and XDR tuberculosis. The course was complemented by visits to the local TB-hospital, where this picture was taken, and the local microbiolgical reference laboratory. The course finished with a walk against TB that was organized by TBnet, members of the Patient Exchange Platform www.takethattb.com, and students from the USMF / Chisinau, to show the human face of TB.
