Abstract

Objectives. Poverty is associated with treatment abandonment, overcrowding and under-nutrition, which increase tuberculosis risk. Many tuberculosis-affected families are unaware of their health-rights, hampering tuberculosis preventive therapy and diagnosis. We aim to develop and evaluate socio-economic interventions for strengthening tuberculosis control.
