Abstract

To understand use of tuberculosis (TB) services for migrant workers, we conducted a cross-sectional census of 95 mi grant workers with TB from Armenia by using medical re cord reviews and face-to-face interviews. Prolonged time between diagnosis and treatment, treatment interruption, and treatment defaults caused by migrant work might in- crease the risk for multidrug-resistant TB.
