Many people affected by TB suffer both from the disease and from the stigma associated with it. The overall objective of the study was to develop further understanding of the mechanisms of stigma associated with TB in and across Pakistan, Nepal and Bangladesh. This may lead to better strategies to reduce TB-related stigma. The study involved qualitative research methods (in-depth interviews and focus group discussions) and applied the grounded theory approach to develop theory.
