Blog Post Highlights Paper Discussing Human Rights, Ethics Concerns Surrounding TB, Migrant Health

Center for Global Health Policy’s “Science Speaks”: The link between TB, migration, human rights and ethics
Rabita Aziz, policy research coordinator at the Center for Global Health Policy, discusses a paper published in the International Journal of Tuberculosis and Lung Disease on the “human rights and ethics concerns surrounding the health needs of migrants, particularly as related to TB. The authors argue that migrant health is not a niche issue but one of critical global public health importance, and that the global community should adopt a human rights-based approach to addressing migrant health at all stages of migration to ensure good health for the migrant and protect public health in their destination country” (9/27).
