Abstract The paper describes results of study of social characteristics of patients in foci of drug-sensitive M. tuberculosis excretion (Group I) and multidrug resistant tuberculosis (MDR TB) (Group II). Main risk factors of TB disease in sources of M. infection are revealed. 58.1% of patients with MDR TB were jobless, and 43.1% of newly detected drug-sensitive TB patients did not have work as well. 35.0% of Group II patients didn’t have a home or lodged the hostels, while homeless made only 2.0% in Group I patients. 36.6% Group II patients had lower living income per month (up to 5000 KZT) than patients in Group I (16.7%). Level of education in patients of Group I was reliably higher that of those of Group II (P<0.05). More than a half of patients in Group II (55.6%) and 26.9% in Group I had the harm habits: smoking and alcohol abusing. 9.7% of patients with MDR TB were drug abusers.
