  1. Fulltext. Social and cultural factors in the successful control of tuberculosis.

    Article - En anglais


    The burden of tuberculosis on the public health is staggering.

    Worldwide, annual incidence of new cases is estimated to be about 8 million.

    Almost 3 million deaths occur yearly.

    Early case identification and adherence to treatment regimens are the remaining barriers to successful control.

    In many nations, however, fewer than half those with active disease receive a diagnosis, and fewer than half those beginning treatment complete it.

    The twin problems of delay in seeking treatment and abandonment of a prescribed regimen derive from complex factors.
