How long does treatment take to cure TB disease?

Answer

It varies. Treatment length depends on the strain, or specific variety, of TB a person has. If the strain is not drug-resistant, the treatment course may be as short as six to eight months. However, a person with resistant TB may require treatment every day for up to two years in order to be cured of the infection.
