Abstract

Tuberculosis (TB) accounts for 2-3 million deaths and 8 million new cases every year worldwide. Indonesia is one of the world’s TB-endemic countries with an estimated incidence of over 200 per 100,000 inhabitants. TB is the second leading cause of death and the third leading cause of morbidity in the country (Muharso, 2000).
