Cristian Molina, 26, stands in the grocery store that he and his family own, which is part of the house that they live in, in the shantytown of Lujan, in Buenos Aries, Argentina September 26, 2019. In the last two years, Molina's family have had to close the shop six times due to not being able to afford merchandise to stock the shop. Molina contracted tuberculosis earlier this year. He shares living spaces with his parents, six siblings and four nephews. Doctors think one brother contracted the disease in prison before spreading it around the family when he returned home.

In a poor Buenos Aires suburb, Cristian Molina's jeans and denim jacket hide his unhealthily slight frame, his legacy from years of a poor diet that left him susceptible to the tuberculosis infection he contracted earlier this year, a disease of poverty that is making a comeback in Argentina. Molina, 26, lives in the shantytown of Lujan near the wealthy capital with his parents, six siblings and four nephews. Doctors think one brother contracted the disease in prison before spreading it around the family when he returned home. Cases of the "white death" illness, closely linked to poverty, malnutrition and poor housing, have been on the rise since the turn of the decade as Latin America's third largest economy has been battered by repeat recessions and inflation. Currently, fast-rising prices and recession are driving more people below the poverty line. The poverty rate stood at above 35% in the first half of the year.

Partners in Health, a Boston-based non-profit that works with Peru's health ministry, offers a simple solution. It trains community volunteers to tend to tuberculosis sufferers in their homes - ensuring patients take medicine daily and helping them navigate the public health bureaucracy.

A HIV-positive child (L) and an orphan, whose parents died of AIDS, rest at a HIV/AIDS hospice, founded by a member of the National League for Democracy (NLD) party, in Yangon February 18, 2012. Tens of thousands of lives are at risk in Myanmar due to an anticipated funding shortfall to treat people living with HIV and tuberculosis, medical charity Medecins Sans Frontieres (MSF) warned Wednesday, urging international donors to provide immediate support to the impoverished country. Myanmar is already facing "a devastating gap" between people's needs and access to treatment and a decision by the Global Fund to fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria to cancel funding for 2013 because of a lack of donor money could worsen the situation, the report "Lives in the balance: the urgent need for HIV and TB treatment in Myanmar" said.
