Abstract

Background: Sufficient evidence concludes that tobacco smoking is strongly linked to tuberculosis (TB). It was suggested that a considerable proportion of the global burden of TB may be attributable to smoking. This study aimed to document the prevalence of smoking among newly diagnosed TB patients and to learn about their tobacco use knowledge and attitudes.
