Tuberculosis and Migration

As one of the leading causes of death worldwide TB is in the forefront of public health discussions on an international stage. The global impact of tuberculosis makes the study of TB and migration in particular a critical public health issue. MCN has been actively involved in a number of critical aspects of this discussion. We bring you the following information to highlight some of the critical global policy discussions currently underway as well as to begin to discuss these issues among those concerned with the impact of TB on the mobile underserved.

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.
