Understanding TB-related stigma in Asia: Bangladesh


The overall aim of the research study was to gather new empirical evidence and further theoretical understanding of the causes of stigma associated with TB in and across Bangladesh, Nepal and Pakistan. This report presents and discusses the findings for Bangladesh only.

The report considers each dimension of TB-related stigma individually, interweaving explanations of why a dimension is related to TB, for whom and in what circumstances. Policy implications have also been put forward for discussion and further development.
