1205MED Tuberculosis

1205MED - Health Challenges for the 21st Century

4 Pages Griffith University Essay / Project Year Uploaded: 2017

The tuberculosis global epidemic is larger than previously estimated and serves as a significant health challenge for the 21st century (World Health Organisation, 2016). In 2015, 1.8 million people died from tuberculosis globally (WHO, 2016), and 95% of these deaths occurred in low to middle income countries (Zürcher et al., 2016). There is a long history of documented linkages between tuberculosis and poor living conditions (Kashyap et al., 2016), and special attention must be focused towards improving these conditions to reduce the tuberculosis epidemic (WHO, 2005). It is important to firstly understand tuberculosis, to secondly recognise impacts of poor living conditions, to completely comprehend how this environmental determinant affects tuberculosis.
