Tuberculosis

Tuberculosis (TB) is one of the infectious diseases of concern to U.S. public health officials working along with US-Mexico border and with other mobile underserved populations. This concern is based on the fact that TB case rates tend to be higher on the border and among migrating populations. TB is also a challenging disease to treat because of the long treatment period, which is complicated when an individual is migrating during treatment.
