Background: Multidrug-Resistant Tuberculosis (MDR-TB) is tuberculosis that does not respond to Isoniazid and Rifampicin and remains one of the major public health concerns in the South-East Asia Region of World Health Organization.
Methodology: A descriptive analytical design with an unmatched case-control study was conducted in Kailali district of Far-Western Nepal among purposively selected 50 cases and 50 controls.
Results: Service, business, migrant labor and house wife were found three times more at risk of having MDR-TB than those who were involved in agriculture (OR 3.38; 95% CI 1.12-10.22). People who live in hill/mountain were also found three times more at risk than those who lives in Terai (OR 3.75; 95% CI 1.19-11.86). Similarly, people who had pulmonary tuberculosis were found eleven times more likely to have MDR-TB than those who had extrapulmonary tuberculosis (OR 11.39; 95% CI 1.10 to-117.3).
Conclusion: The study revealed that there was significant association between occupation, place of residence, type of tuberculosis and MDR-TB.
