In South Africa, little up-to-date information is available about the costs of providing TB treatment to any population, and no information was found on the costs of providing TB treatment to a paediatric population. Despite the significant burden from paediatric TB, analysis of patient characteristics, contacts, and method of diagnosis is limited. The proposed study aims to begin to fill the information gap by generating descriptive analysis of the cost-outcomes of paediatric treatment for TB infection and disease from primary health care clinics in Johannesburg, South Africa. The goal of this retrospective, unlinked medical record review is to describe the patient characteristics, outcomes and costs of treatment for drug-sensitive paediatric TB infection and disease at three public sector primary health care clinics in Johannesburg, South Africa.
