Lungs affected by Tuberculosis

We aim to strengthen the evidence-base on health disparities in at-risk migrant communities, with a focus on infectious diseases. Our objective is to inform national and international policy and practice through our extensive collaborations with diverse organisations in the UK and across Europe. Key interests include:

  • Barriers to healthcare among hard-to-reach migrants, and the impact on migrants, the endogenous population, and the NHS
  • Primary/secondary care interventions to improve screening, vaccination and treatment outcomes for infectious diseases such as tuberculosis (TB) in migrants
  • Obstetric and infection-related outcomes in migrant women 
  • The relationship between migration and TB, and the social, behavioural and psychological impact of TB and similar diseases of poverty on migrant and local populations
