Final Report of the International Workshop on Tuberculosis Control in Prisons (San Pedro Sula, Honduras, 11–13 August, 2003)
Prisons represent a challenge for tuberculosis control authorities. They promote the transmission of the disease by sheltering a vulnerable population that often lacks access to timely diagnosis and appropriate treatment. Prisons have therefore been labeled as TB breeding grounds. This page offers a summary of the report of the August 2003 meeting on TB in prisons and access to the 25-page final report in PDF (with tables, figures and photographs) and a list of useful links.  (31/May/2004)
