Background: Tuberculosis (TB) kills about 3800 people every day with 95% of deaths occurring in developing countries. Despite good adherence to TB medicines being essential for a cure, there is no simple, easily understandable TB medicines information available to South African patients. The aim of the study, therefore, was to design and evaluate.. The access to the whole abstract and the presentation file is available to FIP members and to congress participants of that specific congress.
