Stigma, discrimination some key barriers to TB service access

The first peer-reviewed paper on community, rights and gender (CRG) assessments on access to TB services carried out in 20 countries found that stigma and discrimination against people affected by TB are the leading human rights barriers impeding access to TB prevention, diagnosis, treatment, care and support. The study findings, however, prompted Stop TB Partnership to call on high burden countries for tuberculosis (TB) to invest in interventions that overcome the prevalent human rights barriers that currently diminish the effectiveness of national TB control efforts and ensure social justice equality for all.
