Objective To study current status of human resource for Shanghai tuberculosis (TB) prevention and control system. Methods A self-completed questionnaire investigation on human resource was conducted among 870 medical staff for TB prevention and control(called "TB workers") in Shanghai. Results 642 (73.8%) effective questionnaires were received. 77% TB workers worked in urban designated hospital or community health center (CHC). About 1/3 TB workers were less than 30 years old while 1/4 more than 50 years old. 220 (34.2%) interviewees were undergraduate or above, of which 52% had received professional continuous education. 172 (26.8%) TB workers were in sub-health. 178 interviewees thought their unit didn’t pay enough attention to TB control, for which the main reasons were poor economic benefit (47.5%), heavy workload (30.4%), small space for major development (30.2%), etc. The income of more than half of the TB workers was lower than the unit’s average. Only 46% of the TB workers got the post allowance for TB from the government.Conclusions "Three in one" prevention and control model improved the structure and quality of the human resource of Shanghai TB prevention and control system. However, more works should be done for further improvement, especially on concerning the TB worker’s health, protecting their rights and interests, promoting working enthusiasm and professional sense of honor.
