Abstract

The importance of addressing the conditions that predispose individuals and populations to develop tuberculosis is increasingly being recognized. Accurate quantification of the protective effect of preventive therapy and the provision of pragmatic guidance for clinical care and public health interventions is important. However, this approach must be nested within a socio-political context that addresses associated disadvantage and inequality.
