Description: Tuberculosis is a major global health problem with more than 8.8 million people yearly diagnosed. Though worldwide more men than women are
notified with TB, Afghanistan has seen an opposite pattern for many years with more women notified. This raises questions about gender, help seeking and epidemiological differences for TB. This cultural epidemiological study hopes to
clarify some of these questions.
