Research clarifying the role of gender in tuberculosis control is concerned with specific sociocultural, socioeconomic, and structural barriers affecting men and women, as distinct from sex-based differences in the biological vulnerability affecting epidemiology and pathophysiology of pulmonary TB. This review examines various studies in the literature of health and social science research and recent innovative studies undertaken by WHO/TDR (WHO Special Programme for Research and Training in Tropical Diseases).
