Immigrants, Aboriginals needed to help educate about TB

y members of recovered patients and lay health communicators could offer valuable information in fostering community awareness, the study suggests.

The study included new Canadians from China, Hong Kong, east India, Vietnam, the Philipinnes, Eastern Europe and four Aboriginal communities in Canada. Interviews with them revealed how they felt about TB. Some believed TB was a result of irresponsible lifestyle or overwork. Others didn't tell people they had the disease, for fear of stigma.

The study revealed that people who had been able to learn enough about the disease were more positive and had better experiences with TB than those who did not know much about it.
