Impact of Long Term Hospitalization on People with Tuberculosis


SMIT launches the report on the Impact of Long Term Hospitalization on People with Tuberculosis. Long-term hospitalization can leave a big mark in every patient’s life. The economic and psycho-emotional effects of hospitalization present an additional burden on patients, both during the treatment and post-treatment period of its social reintegration.
This report makes use of data gathered by SMIT through surveys, interviews and focus groups conducted at multiple sites in Moldova with people who were being treated for TB. It considers these data alongside literature including peer-reviewed articles and WHO guidelines to assess the impact of hospitalization on people with TB and their families and to make recommendations which are appropriate to the Moldovan context and which are in line with WHO guidelines and international best practices.
