JACOBS, Marina Gasino  e  PINTO JUNIOR, Vitor Laerte. Brazilian cities profile, the occurence of tuberculosis and its drug-resistant form. Ciênc. saúde coletiva [online]. 2019, vol.24, n.7, pp.2379-2386.  Epub 10-Jul-2019. ISSN 1413-8123.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/1413-81232018247.20532017.

Tuberculosis is closely related to living conditions. This study classifies Brazilian municipalities according to the occurrence of tuberculosis (TB) and drug-resistant TB (DR-TB) cases and describes them with regard to the population’s health conditions, tuberculosis control indicators, demographic and socioeconomic profile. In 2014, 327 municipalities reported DR-TB cases. Integrated regions of development or metropolitan regions accounted for 80.1% of national DR-TB cases. Municipalities with DR-TB cases had worse TB outcome indicators, but higher culture test percentages, and more inhabitants and better socioeconomic indicators. The 3,644 municipalities with TB cases, but without DR-TB cases, had the worst socioeconomic indicators among the three groups. The 1,594 municipalities without TB cases had the lowest rates of unemployment and AIDS detection and greater coverage of primary healthcare. The different profiles found in the study can sustain improved national interventions for TB and drug-resistant TB control in Brazil.
