dc.description.abstractOver the past two decades, despite a growing tuberculosis (TB) epidemic, the South African health system and National TB Programme (NTP) have taken significant steps to ensure improved clinical awareness, early diagnosis, prompt treatment initiation and follow-up of treatment outcomes in cases of TB. The effects of these programmatic measures over time on changes in the severity of disease and presenting clinical profile of patients with pulmonary TB have not been studied. Doing so may provide another window on the impact of TB control initiatives in South Africa.
