TB Risk Perceptions among Medical Residents

Health Care Workers (HCWs) are known to be at risk of acquiring tuberculosis in the workplace. In response to this risk, the WHO published guidelines for prevention of TB in health care facilities and policy on TB infection control. In India, studies have also reported an increased risk of TB among HCWs. The government has issued airborne infection control recommendations for healthcare settings. However, due to structural, administrative, and behavioral factors, implementation of these guidelines has been poor.
