Results

However, less than one-third of survey respondents (31.03%) knew the route of TB transmission. In terms of attitudes, most elderly people (86.03% and 86.89%) wanted to learn about TB or participate in TB education activities, respectively. More than one-third of respondents (36.44%) were willing to be screened for TB if they had suggestive symptoms. Only 225 (21.15%) and 261 (24.90%) participants did not think that TB is a terrible disease or were willing to complete treatment if diagnosed with TB.
