Better healthcare could reduce crippling personal costs of tuberculosis care in China

Improved universal healthcare is urgently needed to lower catastrophic health expenditure (CHE) for low-income tuberculosis (TB) patients in China, according to a study published in the open access journal Infectious Diseases of Poverty. Expanding universal healthcare could reduce the numbers of people affected by CHE. The researchers suggest that expanding what the free treatment packages will cover, for example by including transport costs and supplementary medication, and increasing the reimbursement rates and the number of people covered by universal healthcare is necessary to lower the numbers of people affected by CHE in China. This may also have positive economic effects as TB is most prevalent among 15-54 year-olds who make up the most economically productive sector of the population.
