All Wales Guideline: Management of Refugees at risk of Drug-Resistant Tuberculosis – ICST

All Wales Guideline: Management of Refugees at risk of Drug-Resistant Tuberculosis

Asylum seekers and refugees are at high-risk of reactivation of Tuberculosis. Early screening, particularly to detect active TB, is vital to exclude ongoing transmission and ensure treatment success.

Assessment and management should be delivered by designated TB teams within each health board.

The aim of the All Wales Guideline is to rapidly identify those at risk of Drug-Resistant TB and manage appropriately in the community or hospital by local TB teams.
