    Immigrant health care is considered distinct from citizen health care, due to intersecting socioeconomic factors and health policies associated with immigration status. Disparities in health care usage, coverage, and quality are also observed, not only between immigrants and citizens but also among immigrant groups as well. Existing studies have revealed strong correlation of these disparities.   Recent immigrants may face additional obstacles to care, including illegal immigration status (fears of deportation), illiteracy, and a radically different set of health beliefs.

      Immigrant families may have different culture, religion, or social class that affects their interactions with the provider and the health care system. 29 Over half of the undocumented immigrants in the U.S. are from Mexico and since there has been a rise of immigrants from Central America (El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras), Asia, and Sub-Saharan Africa. 4 Compared to the general.   BackgroundThe re-emergence of tuberculosis (TB) in low-incidence countries and its disproportionate burden on immigrants is a public health concern posing specific social and ethical challenges.

The aims of the present study were to clarify the difficulties in TB infection control at non-TB specialized hospitals and whether any associated risks of latent TB infection exist among health professionals in Vietnam.

However, adherence to LTBI treatment is a challenge that is influenced by knowledge and perceptions. This research explores Chinese immigrants&#x; knowledge and perceptions.

The setting for this study was the Pacific island nation of Vanuatu, an archipelago of 82 islands, located in the South Pacific Ocean. Our objective was to assess the knowledge, attitudes and practices of tuberculosis (TB) patients towards TB. This was a descriptive study using qualitative and quantitative methods.

Quantitative analysis was based on the responses provided to closed questions. Immigration from areas of high incidence is thought to have fueled the resurgence of tuberculosis (TB) in areas of low incidence. To reduce the risk of disease in low-incidence areas, the main countermeasure has been the screening of immigrants on arrival.

This measure is based on the assumption of a prompt decline in the incidence of TB in immigrants during their first few years of residence. The study objective was to find ways to reduce the high incidence of tuberculosis among the Vietnamese by: (1) identifying and understanding the cultural health beliefs and barriers among the Vietnamese population of Orange County, California; and (2) developing a partnership between UCLA/VA/RAND MEDTEP, key Vietnamese community-based.
