Refusal of drug treatment

Failure to take prescribed medical treatment
People refuse to take prescribed medical drugs for many reasons; laziness, failure to understand the consequences of not taking the drugs and belief that the consequences of recovery from the illness are worse than the consequences of the illness.
Russian prisoners refuse to take drugs for tuberculosis because they fear that if they recover, they would be sent to a labour camp, which would be even worse than the squalid prisons they live in.
