Abstract

ALTHOUGH HISTORICALLY TUBERCULOSIS (TB) HAS BEEN ASSOCIATED WITH POVERTY, FEW ANALYTICAL STUDIES FROM DEVELOPING COUNTRIES HAVE TRIED TO: 1. assess the relative impact of poverty on TB after the emergence of HIV; 2. explore the causal mechanism underlying this association; and 3. estimate how many cases of TB could be prevented by improving household socioeconomic position (SEP).
