  1. Reference category is TB (-) Depression (-)
  2. Health status was the outcome and scores ranged from 0 to 100 with higher scores corresponding to worse health status
  3. Models are adjusted for age, sex, education, wealth, household size, location, smoking, alcohol consumption, body mass index, diabetes, and country
  4. TB tuberculosis, CI confidence interval
