And again about tuberculosis! Rather, about the fight against it, a terrible diagnosis, about which it is not only scary but sometimes embarrassing to speak out loud. Tuberculosis is still a disease that causes a mixture of horror and disgust among others. And this despite the fact that a "silent" tuberculosis bacterium, according to WHO, infected a third of the world's population. The number of operations in the Zaporizhia Regional Tuberculosis Dispensary carried out in 2018 is 170. For nine months of 2019, it is already 163. Not only human resources are involved in the fight against the disease, but also those remnants of technical progress that remained in the TB dispensary as an inheritance.

Sad eyes, a serious in a not-childish way look and concern when mom is not within arm's reach are such a first impression of meeting Dania. He is only seven, and he hears almost nothing. He lives in his own special world, devoid of bright colors and multifaceted sounds, and therefore a little disturbing when there is no mother's hand nearby. Dania’s diagnosis was established recently, and to preserve hearing, he urgently needs hearing aids.

Everyone who meets Dasha involuntarily compares her with a small, energetic puppy. The baby has a lot of energy and positive. She loves animals and it seems that they all feel it, because they run to her from all sides. Dasha can’t sit still for a minute. As soon as she stops for a few moments, she immediately manages to do mischief, with the words: "I could not help myself, I was bored!". Parents are still happy for such activity because, for children with cystic fibrosis, movement is life. And for Dashuli, it’s doubly, since she has had a destructive Pseudomonas aeruginosa in her lungs for several years.
For nine months, our babies stay in their small and comfortable microcosm before they are born. All this time they live under the close and gentle supervision of their guardian angel – the mother. A difficult test awaits those crumbs who are in a hurry to make the world happy ahead of time. At such moments, it is very important that the mother is near. Her touch, hugs, and breastfeeding can work wonders: even very small and weak kids grow up as real strongmen. In the intensive care unit for newborns of Zaporizhzhia Regional Children's Hospital, a lot of time and attention is paid specifically to the nutrition of children. This is the same medical technology as the administration of drugs or artificial respiration.

At first see, Lisa appears no different from her peers, though perhaps more active. She might seem naughty for not responding to questions or commands.
