Description

Identifying Men's Preferences for a Male-Centered TB Care Intervention Identifying Men's Preferences for a Male-Centered TB Care Intervention To improve TB-related outcomes for men, we must understand how to counteract social norms of masculinity that impact health behaviors relevant to retention in and progression along the TB care cascade. To achieve the End TB Strategy target of halving TB incidence by 2025, and a 95% reduction in TB deaths by 2035, treatment and control of TB specifically among men is absolutely imperative. Our results will inform a future NIH R34 grant proposal to develop and pilot a male-centered care intervention to support men during their TB treatment and ultimately improve TB outcomes.
