Due to resource constraints and technical difficulties in diagnosing childhood TB, the incidence of TB among infants is certainly unknown in Cambodia. This six month cross-sectional epidemiology study will enroll up to 1 1, 000 children and infants under five years old. The principal objective of the analysis can be to estimate the prevalence of tuberculosis among BCG-vaccinated kids over the set period of the analysis in two operational districts of Svay Rieng Province. With specific estimates of TB incidence in infants and kids, strategic programs and policies for preventing, diagnosing and treating childhood TB could be developed in Cambodia and various other resource poor environments.
