South Africa is one of the countries with the highest burden of TB, with the World Health Organisation (WHO) statistics giving an estimated incidence of 450,000 cases of active TB in 2013. So almost 1% of the population of about 50 million develop active TB disease each year. This is worldwide the third highest incidence of any country after India and China, and the incidence has increased by 400% over the past 15 years. Out of the 450,000 incident cases in South Africa it is estimated by WHO that about 270,000 (60%) people have both HIV and TB infection. The latest figure from the South African Department of Health is that 73% of TB patients are HIV positive.1 When figures are provided by both WHO and the South African government, and the figures are different, this can be because the WHO is always providing estimated figures, whereas the South African government is providing actual figures. WHO give a prevalence figure for active TB of 390,000 people in South Africa in 2011.

It is 17:35 and one of the trains to Khayelitsha departs from Cape Town's train station. The masses of people travelling on this line are packed into the train coaches. The carriages get so full that people hang out of the windows and doors or stand in between the coaches. This of course is a dangerous activity but cannot be helped as there is simply not enough space during the daily rush hours. After an already long day at work in town the commuters have to endure a last travel to their homes. The environment is untidy, dark and there is no space to move around. It gets hot in the train, making it almost impossible to breathe, yet the mood is light and people enjoy conversation, singing and perhaps a packet of Nik Naks or Spookies.
