Dimensions: 8.7in. x 5.9in. x 0.5in.There has been a global increase in incidence of tuberculosis (TB) over the last decade and rates of TB show wide disparities between migrants and host populations.

In addition, transnational experiences of health care systems, lack of Asian health care professionals, interpreters and cultural stigma surrounding TB create barriers to TB diagnosis and treatment for migrants, contributing to inequalities in TB rates between host and migrant populations.
