Tuberculosis among asylum seekers
Global migration is increasing, including migration from tuberculosis (TB) high-incidence countries to TB low-incidence countries as Denmark. Asylum seekers are at increased risk of having TB, and screening for TB is potentially highly relevant in Europe. However, there is a large variation in the ways screening is carried out and in the yield of the different screening programmes. There is a need of more quality data on how effectively to target the screening among asylum seekers, considering both the TB incidence in the country of origin and the risk factors along the migration route.
