Paper Status Tracking


Ulla-Britt Engelbrektsson and Madhusudan Subedi



In focus are delays in health seeking in connection with tuberculosis in rural Nepal. A longitudinal in-depth field study made it possible to research individual actions and processes in relation to those of relevant others. Moreover, the approach facilitated the tracing of clustering of cases over time and patterns of health-seeking processes within these. The overall picture is one of long delays. The reasons for the lengthy delays were not inactivity from the patient side but rather the opposite: a frantic search for help during which they were led astray more often than helped!


Tuberculosis, Nepal, health-seeking processes, delays.
