Access to Care and Adherence Tuberculosis (TB) Survey (TBsurvey)
Prompt access to care and treatment adherence are the hearth of tuberculosis control.
This is a multicentre observational prospective study aimed at studying the factors associated with delayed access to care and low adherence to anti-tuberculosis treatment. Hetero- and self-administered questionnaires will be used at enrollment to assess clinical presentation and time and modalities of the diagnosis. Treatment adherence will be assessed during the follow-up with self administered questionnaires.
