  • Tuberculosis

  • Tobacco and Alcohol use (life styles)

  • In NFHS-3, information on persons in the household with TB comes from the household respondent

  • Information on TB awareness, misconceptions, and stigma comes from the women’s and men’s questionnaires

  • Prevalence of TB, primarily of medically treated (which is a more reliable measure of TB in the population)

  • NFHS-3, 2005-06

    Per 100,000 persons

    Since NFHS-2, reported TB has declined by 18%, but the level of medically treated TB has not changed

    • NFHS-3 demonstrates that use of solid fuels increases the TB level; the lowest prevalence is in households using clean fuels such as gas/electricity

    • Misconceptions about TB transmission are still high, suggesting the need for awareness campaigns

    • Programmes need to address higher prevalence groups such as older persons, persons in rural areas, and persons in the east and northeastern parts of India
