Abstract or Summary
  • According to the World Health Organization’s (WHO) Tuberculosis Annual Report of 2014, from the 9 million cases worldwide, China has about 11% of these cases. Although the control of TB has improved over the years, China still has the second leading highest Tuberculosis epidemic in the world. Using literature reviews and case studies, the aim of this research is to examine the following question: why is it that China is unable to control and decrease the rates of TB, while the United States, as a comparison model, is able to decrease the number of cases? There are many aspects that contribute, three factors that impact China’s ability to control the TB epidemic are: access to Tuberculosis medical care, cost of medical care, and the effects of social stigmas.
