MUNOZ SANCHEZ, Alba Idaly  y  RUBIANO MESA, Yurian Lida. Health-disease process built environment for tuberculosis: a case in Bogota (Colombia). Index Enferm [online]. 2011, vol.20, n.4, pp.229-232. ISSN 1132-1296.

The health-disease process (PSE) is a category for understanding individual, collective and social attitudes against a given phenomenon, being important in its approach. This article describes the category "PSE" that emerged from the viewpoint of the carriers of tuberculosis from a study conducted at bogotan locality (Colombia). Using a qualitative hermeneutic approach we interviewed in depth ten individuals had been carriers of tuberculosis and who had completed their treatment successfully. The results show the meanings of tuberculosis as feelings of fear and pain, and perceived as a disease of the "poverty". The stigma permeated the previous category, manifesting itself in all spheres of life of the carriers. The stigma of the disease became a limiting factor for seeking timely medical care and the actions identified in the supervised strategy for tuberculosis control.
