This report, by the Stop TB Partnership, advocates a gender and rights-based approach to TB prevention and cure. Since TB is the fifth leading cause of death amongst women in the country, ahead of maternal deaths, this report offers valuable insights for program design and implementation at the national, state, district, and community levels. This is the first rapid assessment of gender and TB in India and includes an extensive review of literature primarily from the country, as well as interviews with 70 stakeholders of the Revised National Tuberculosis Control Program (RNTCP). It considers TB prevention, diagnosis, care, risk factors, and social determinants for all genders and marginalized minorities such as transgenders and tribal communities. It also suggests that gender affects susceptibility to TB, its diagnosis, access and adherence to treatment, availability of supportive care, and treatment outcomes.
