5.4.5. Post-TB health-related quality of life

Health-related quality of life is the perceived quality of a person’s daily life. It is an holistic way to quantify and measure illness-associated morbidity and the impact of health interventions. Examples of generic, non-disease-specific tools that can be used in young children, including those with TB, are EQ-5D-Y and TANDI (153, 154). EQ-5D-Y is a widely used self-report measure for children aged 8 years and over (155). TANDI was developed as a parent proxy experimental version from EQ-5D-Y and can be used in children aged up to 3 years (154, 156).
