Kenya Develops TB Treatment for Children

Tuberculosis is one of the most dangerous and deadly diseases in the world. The Centers for Diseases Control estimates about one-third of the world's population has the disease, and it was responsible for 1.5 million deaths in 2014. In Kenya, fighting the disease in children just became easier thanks to a new drug that hit the market in October. VOA's Kevin Enochs has this report compiled with the help of Lenny Ruvaga in Nairobi.
