Although preventable and treatable, Tuberculosis kills more people globally than any other single infectious disease. The cause has mainly been attributed to a lack of access to quality, affordable, and equitable healthcare. Stigma further exacerbates these challenges. Hence, addressing stigma is a necessity to stem the progress of TB. This implementation handbook will help countries assess how TB vulnerability, treatment availability, accessibility and acceptability, and the quality of TB care are shaped by the various types of stigma that are attached to it. It will also help inform the design of stigma reduction interventions to transform TB responses at the country level. The TB Stigma Assessment uses a multi-stakeholder approach to ensure broad buy-in and uptake of recommendations at the highest level while ensuring that the approach is community-driven.
