Knowledge about tuberculosis among public transportation users in Santiago de Cali, Colombia, 2017
description Knowledge about Tuberculosis (TB) is limited among the general population of Cali, the second city in Colombia with the highest burden of TB. Here, we sought to determine the level of knowledge about TB among users of the public transportation system of the city. We conducted a cross-sectional study using a structured questionnaire to collect information in 12 main stations of the transport system. Data were collected in a working day of March 2017. Out of 193 interviewed users, 80% answered to have limited knowledge about TB. However, most of the participants identified coughing as a symptom of TB (74.6%) and recognized that TB is a contagious disease (75.1%) that could be transmitted by the air (61.7%). Seventy percent of participants knew that TB is a curable disease. On the other hand, there were misconceptions regarding TB transmission and the identification of other classical symptoms of TB was limited. Understanding the level of knowledge about TB among the general population is key to design communicative and educational strategies to control and prevent this disease.

Poco se conoce sobre los conocimientos sobre tuberculosis (TB) en Cali, segunda ciudad colombiana con mayor carga de la enfermedad. Esta investigación buscó determinar el grado de conocimientos sobre TB en usuarios del transporte masivo. Se realizó un estudio descriptivo de corte transversal aplicando un cuestionario a usuarios de 12 estaciones principales del sistema de transporte público en un día laboral de marzo de 2017. De 193 encuestados, el 80% manifestó conocer poco o nada sobre TB. La mayoría identificó la tos como síntoma (74,6%) y refirió que es una enfermedad contagiosa (75,1%), transmitida por aire (61,7%) y curable (70,5%). No es tan frecuente la identificación de otros síntomas y hay concepciones erróneas sobre la transmisión. Identificar los conocimientos de la población acerca de la enfermedad permite orientar estrategias comunicativas y educativas para prevenir y controlar la TB, dirigidas al público que converge en el sistema de transporte masivo.  2019-12-30 info:eu-repo/semantics/article info:eu-repo/semantics/publishedVersion Peer-reviewed Article Artículo Revisado por Pares Académicos https://revistas.unilibre.edu.co/index.php/iJEPH/article/view/5636 10.18041/2665-427X/ijeph.2.5636 eng spa https://revistas.unilibre.edu.co/index.php/iJEPH/article/view/5636/6054 https://revistas.unilibre.edu.co/index.php/iJEPH/article/view/5636/5476 https://revistas.unilibre.edu.co/index.php/iJEPH/article/view/5636/6248 https://revistas.unilibre.edu.co/index.php/iJEPH/article/view/5636/6251 /*ref*/World Health Organization.
