Perspectives of health care providers in Portugal on the provision of care to migrant patients with TB or HIV-TB co-infection

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Migrants’ access to and use of health care often plays an important role in their vulnerability to infectious diseases, namely tuberculosis and HIV. Despite the increasing efforts of health systems, some difficulties in prevention and treatment remain. Studies of the provision of care to migrants with TB or HIV-TB are still scarce. This study aims to analyse the providers’ perspectives on the provision of care to migrants infected with TB or HIV-TB.
