Tuberculosis (TB), a life-threatening infectious disease, ranks alongside human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) as a global leading cause of death. Often viewed as a disease of poverty, tuberculosis infections persist worldwide. If the prescribed treatment regimen is successfully followed, regular TB has a cure rate of approximately 95%. Therefore, tuberculosis is a treatable disease. However, the disease is complex and there are many factors that must be considered when understanding why the disease continues to infect so many.
Bangladesh, a lower-middle income country in South Asia, is one of 22 countries that are considered “high burden” tuberculosis countries. It is also a country where many garment factories are located, as Bangladesh is able to offer low cost production for buyers. Garment factory workers have a higher than average tuberculosis prevalence than the general population.
In this course, you will complete an analysis of the challenge of reducing the tuberculosis burden in garment factory workers in Bangladesh. It is important for you to review the requirements for this project early so you can begin organizing your thoughts and gathering resources.
