Tuberculosis among asylum-seekers in Milan, Italy: Epidemiological analysis and evaluation of interventions

Abstract

In low-incidence countries of the European Union (EU), vulnerable populations are largely responsible for the lack of a faster decline of the tuberculosis (TB) incidence rate [1]. Above all, poor and marginalised people living in metropolitan areas [2, 3] have a greater risk of developing TB. In the last few years a large proportion of TB cases in EU occurred among the foreign-born [4] at a younger median age compared to native populations with TB [1, 5].
