Resumen

ANDRADE, Kaio Vinicius Freitas de et al. Association between treatment outcome, sociodemographic characteristics and social benefits received by individuals with tuberculosis in Salvador, Bahia, Brazil, 2014-2016. Epidemiol. Serv. Saúde [online]. 2019, vol.28, n.2, e2018220.  Epub 27-Jun-2019. ISSN 1679-4974.  http://dx.doi.org/10.5123/s1679-49742019000200004.

Objective:

to analyze association between tuberculosis treatment outcome, sociodemographic characteristics and receipt of social benefits.

Methods:

this was a cohort study conducted in Salvador, Bahia, Brazil, in the period 2014-2016; we analyzed bivariate associations between treatment outcome, sociodemographic characteristics and social benefits.

Results:

216 individuals were followed, of whom 79.6% were cured; higher cure proportion was associated with schooling >9 years (87.5%; p=0.028), marital union (86.3%; p=0.031), and household density ≤2 individuals/bedroom (84.1%; p=0.013); we took as our reference individuals with schooling ≤9 years, not in marital union, and housing density >2 people/bedroom; higher cure proportion was also found among recipients of government and non-government benefits (90.5%), and among those who only received direct benefits (81.6%).

Conclusion:

schooling >9 years, marital union, and household density ≤2 individuals/bedroom were associated with higher cure; this outcome was more frequent among individuals receiving government and non-government benefits, and among individuals receiving only direct benefits.
