  2. Showed predictors of health related quality of life domains among men and women patients respectively. Education, occupation, undernutrition, depression, tuberculosis, anemia and family support were independent predictors of health related quality of life domains in both genders. in addition, rural residence was also significantly associated with QOL domains (p-value < 0.05)
