Ambaw F, Mayston R, Hanlon C, Alem A - BMJ Open (2015)

Bottom Line: Outcome variables include: pathways to treatment, classical outcomes for anti-TB treatment quality of life and disability.Descriptive statistics, logistic regression and multilevel mixed-effect analysis will be used to test the study hypotheses.We hope the dissemination of findings will raise awareness of comorbidity among clinicians and service providers, and contribute to ongoing debates regarding the delivery of mental healthcare in primary care in Ethiopia.
