Confronting a Hidden Disease: TB in Roma Communities
Author(s): Marta Schaaf
Abstract:

International agencies such as the World Bank,1 the United Nations Development Program (UNDP),2 and the Council of Europe3 report that TB is more prevalent in Roma communities and that the Roma are more vulnerable to TB. However, no comprehensive document exists outlining the available data regarding the prevalence of TB in Roma communities, the factors that shape Roma vulnerability to TB, and the barriers to TB control in Roma communities.
