The article offers information on a study conducted by the authors related to isoniazid preventive therapy (IPT) in treatment of tuberculosis (TB) in Indonesian children. 260 children for the main cohort 150 aged below 5 and active TB was excluded in 82 children, who became part of the sub-study. Possible risk factors for poor adherence were calculated using logistic regression and interviews were also conducted to investigate poor adherence.
